I'll admit I am a meat lover, but if I could eat food like this everyday (raw and vegan) I would probably convert. Very tasty from start to finish. The worst bite was the last because it was all gone. A must try for anyone...More

Turtle Lake Refuge is dedicated to celebrate the connection between personal healthand wild lands. They prepare gourmet raw food, vegeterian meals which are absolutely wonderful. No price, the meal is based on donation and the project is unique. I would like to write about it, I think travelers would really enjoy this healthy tasty place, with a different pace than the typical tourist attraction. I hope you would like it. Best to you Dominique
