Welcome to Amherst Island

Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2ย mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.

The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Lifeย  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

This page is offered and maintained by the Amherst Island Community Alliance.

Sally`s Birthday

Happy birthday Sal.

Our glue.

Our grower of green, healthy food.

Chortling with laughter.

Brave in the face of illness.

Inappropriate jokes about the size of her carrots.

We wish you a very happy birthday, dear Sally.

You have held this place together for many years.

You gave up the city comforts when you fell in love with a farmer.

A man who says "I love you" with loads of composted manure for your garden.

We value your Loraxian connection to the trees (especially the lightning tree).

You coordinate all of our hand knitting and 100 other things.

You got us a thousand follows on Instagram before anyone else knew what that was.

You have given many a wayward person a safe place to land and collect themselves.

Night time gardening.

Breakfast making hospitality.

You taught the first "truck driving for women" course at St Lawrence college.

You ate moose balls in the Arctic.

You have trophies from your days as a golfer.

You showed Canada to the world at Expo `67.

This farm still exists because of the positive life force you bring.

And all of the thousand little hidden jobs.

If you see Sally in her garden,

Please tell her that she`s done a good job... That she is still doing a good job.

Retirement is a funny thing on the farm.

You never run out of things to do...

And that might not be a bad thing.

Thank you for following our journey.

Thank you for helping us to keep the farmland as a farm.
