The Cow & Sow Eatery at 36 Colborne Street in Fenelon Falls will be under new ownership as of next Thursday (September 15).
Sandy and Haley Pickering, who own On The Locks restaurant at 26 Colborne Street, have purchased the business from mother-and-daughter team Lorraine and Emily Forbes.
“We are so excited and grateful for the Cow to continue on with local business owners and prominent members of the community,” announced Emily on The Cow & Sow’s Facebook page on Thursday (September 8).
“Words cannot express how grateful my mum and I are to have had this opportunity to connect with such a wonderful community,” Emily wrote. “Fenelon Falls truly is more than a community, it is a family. We have had the pleasure of meeting and creating many long lasting friendships and will miss seeing you all regularly.”
The Forbes opened The Cow & Sow Eatery last October, after purchasing the restaurant in 2019 from former owner Dickon Robinson and completing extensive renovations.
The Cow & Sow was originally part of the Mansion House Hotel, built in the late 1800s, and has been home to a variety of businesses since then. Robinson opened the Cow & Sow in 1996.
