Waterloo Country Mennonite Farm Tour

Board the train and enjoy a scenic train ride through the rural Mennonite countryside.

See firsthand what a working Mennonite farm looks like and learn how their traditions make our region unique. Enjoy a delicious packed lunch provided by the locally Mennonite run Kitchen Kuttings Café. You’ll enjoy a hearty homemade summer sausage sandwich with freshly baked bread, locally preserved sweet pickles, Martin’s Apple Chips, and a local Mennonite favourite – Jam Jam Cookie.
