Tea On The Lawn

2:00pm – 4:00pm
Our menu features an assortment of homemade tea breads with steeped tea or ice cold lemonade.
$5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children.
Ramsay Women’s Institute has been serving Tea on the Lawn at the Mill of Kintail during the summer for over 50 years. The tranquil setting of the Indian River, delicious homemade tea breads, and properly steeped tea in china cups and frosted glasses of lemonade is a tradition worth saving.
Every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon in July and August from 2:00 to 4:00, Institute members invite you to enjoy a relaxing time with friends and family on the grounds beside the museum. The maple trees provide a shady respite from the summer sun, and the background sound of the flowing Indian River water is all the music you need.

The tasting room has large viewing windows into the cheese kitchen, and will be a space where visitors can come and enjoy weekly specials (including specialty grilled cheeses!) and also purchase fresh curd, farm products, and of course Back Forty’s regular line of cheeses as well.
In addition to their own products, their Grand Opening on July 2 will feature a localbrewery and a wine producer, as well as Mike McKenzie from Seed to Sausage who will be serving up his products on the grill.
