A portion  of our Victorian barn has been transformed into a restaurant operating as the Ridge Berry Farm Tea Room.

In a wonderful veranda setting, guests can enjoy the tastes of Pelham and Niagara. Our philosophy is one of "farm to table". Our Table d'Hote High Tea Menu is seasonally crafted to highlight the delicacies of our farm and those of local growers.
