September 26, 2016

WALLACE, N.S. — Growing its own greens on site not only ensures fresh lettuce in the kitchen at Fox Harb’r Resort, it also comes with a significant return on investment.

Nor do they have access to the green thumb of horticulturalist Michael Stewart, who also grows a number of other vegetables — tomatoes, beans, heirloom peppers, eggplants, zucchini and peas, for example — and all the flowers for the property.

Fox Harb’r: A Canadian Success Story from Donuts to Divots

August 31, 2016

After Anita Draycott’s visit, she knew the Fox Harb’r Resort story had the makings of a great Canadian novel or movie. Blue-collar cop Ron Joyce, from remote Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, buys a donut/coffee shop in Hamilton, Ontario with Tim Horton, a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player, which becomes a roaring success, ultimately with franchises across Canada. Mr. Joyce wanted to give back to his childhood community so he opened his first camp for underprivileged kids near his birthplace. He then buys a parcel of land, dreaming of a five-star golf resort. He succeeds, and his legacy lives on.

Fractional Ownership: A piece of a bigger luxury pie

July 30, 2016

By: Hunter Milborne
Fractional ownership began decades ago when companies who needed to use a private jet, but couldn’t afford to own one outright, pooled their resources, purchased one together and scheduled its shared usage. Since then the concept has extended to everything from high-value jewellery to RV’s, sports cars, yachts and real estate

Sustainable seafood hits Atlantic Canada

July 28, 2016

Fox Harb’r Resort, known for its outstanding golf and luxury accommodations, is also a culinary destination.  Shane Robilliard, Executive Chef at Fox Harb’r Resort, is a passionate advocate for sustainable dining and his menu reflects that philosophy.  “For the most part, it’s as local as you can get,” he says. The pan-seared trout on the menu may be fish he’s hooked himself in one of Fox Harb’r’s two stocked fly fishing ponds, while lobster, halibut, salmon, mussels and farmed scallops come from local suppliers.  This “buy local” commitment has earned the Cape Cliff the distinction of being Atlantic Canada’s first sustainable seafood restaurant, certified by Ocean Wise, a Vancouver Aquarium conservation program to educate and empower consumers about their seafood dining choices.
