Camden Harbour Inn and Natalie's are committed to using the very best materials from a community of local farmers, fishermen, foragers and cheese makers. Most of the ingredients are organically grown or harvested wild and used at the peak of its season. We invite you to visit some of the local farmers and pick your own apples or make your own wine.
Among the special experiences we can arrange for you are:
