What better way to spend a Sunday morning than with some goats? Have a morning of fun at Island Hill Farm – don’t forget to grab a hot chocolate while you are there! Did you know that IHF has Farmer Flory’s Cafe + a Gift Shop? They have a Black Friday sale going on right now for their annual memberships. Check off the kids on your Christmas list in Hampshire!

All that fun will work up an appetite, so stop by The Mill in New Glasgow for lunch and to visit The Village Square vendors and then you could quickly swing by the PEI Preserve Company to pick up some snacks for later, or their delicious Hot Chocolate. 

If the weather is permitting, take a hike on the trail at Bonshaw Hills Provincial Park and enjoy a post- hike treat at Island Chocolates in Victoria – their White Chocolate Cocoa (with an optional shot of espresso) is the perfect pick me up, plus – you could also enjoy their famous  Chocolate waffles from 10am to 2pm Island Chocolates will also host Megan Ellands from 4pm – 6pm!

End the afternoon off with a visit to the North River Causeway to get some shopping done at Anne of Green Gables Chocolates and COWs Creamery to pick up their delicious hot chocolate mixture for home.
