Plan Your Day in Pelham
Located in the heart of Niagara's Wine Country, Pelham is made up of five villages, encompassing the communities of Fenwick, Fonthill, Effingham, North Pelham and Ridgeville.
Rich in experiences for the whole family to enjoy, here are a few options to help plan your day in Pelham!
Start your Pelham adventure with a stop by Nature's Corner Bakery and Café for a late breakfast or early lunch at their quaint location at 302 Canboro Road, Unit 1A, Ridgeville. Nature's Corner proudly works with local and organic farmers and their menu includes sandwiches, soups, and salads, and seasonally inspired specialty drinks. Don't forget to pick up a freshly baked scone, square, and/or muffin for the road. We recommend everything!
Channel the energy from your delicious meal into a local pick-your-own experience:
