HOME OF ROLLS AND HONEY
In 1918 master baker Jim Pettapiece, and his wife Mimi, first generation of our family, purchased Fern Cottage (Resort) and brought with them, along with their three children, a secret roll recipe that earmarked Fern’s tradition of great food as a key experience. Pairing perfectly with Crerar’s Honey, an apiary from the Ottawa valley, Fern has partnered with this family business for four generations. A century later, the tradition continues, Jim’s rolls baked freshly each day based on his original roll recipe with Crerar’s honey, a taste with such distinction, Fern Resort became known as “The Home of Rolls and Honey”, a tradition 99 years young.
