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 (2 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 Life  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.

Cole the worker and Kohl the lamb 🥰🐏🤗

*Reminder, today is the last day to pre-order for pickup at the Topsy Pop-Up shop in Kingston on Sunday.

Your are still welcome and encouraged to stop by and say hello (maybe pick up a jar of raw honey).

Cole, pictured above, is one of our beekeepers.

This is Cole's 4th season at Topsy Farms.

He is studying engineering queensuniversity .

Cole is a recipient of a Canada Summer Jobs grant.

This funding helps a business like Topsy hire workers that we might not be able to otherwise.

We are grateful for these programs and we are grateful for Cole.

Feeder of lambs.

Hauler of bales.

Player of board games.

Destroyer of cellphones.

This is likely Cole's last working summer here at Topsy.

It is time that Cole gets a job in the field he's studying.

We will be sad to lose him and there will always be a place here for him.

"Home is the place where when you go there, they have to take you in"*

Cole is the "Silent Bob" of Topsy.

Just 'cause he ain't speakin' don't mean he ain't listenin'.

Cole's family runs wanderingbeancoffee - they have a shop in Toronto and they do events.

The next one will be the CNE in Toronto - if you see a Wandering Bean outlet, please tell them Topsy says hello.

If you see Cole in the yard, please tell him that he's doing a good job.

He is helping to keep the farmland as a farm.

Just don't expect much of a reply.
