WELCOME TO HURON COUNTY
Huron County is the most agriculturally productive county in Ontario and the people that live here are proud of that fact. Drive along the county lines and side roads on a sunny, warm day in July and this is what you may see:
A cloud of chaff billowing around a combine as the farmer harvests a vast field of ripe golden grain. Fledging corn stalks reaching toward the sky – knee high by the fourth of July, as the old saying goes! Dairy cattle lazing under a shade tree in the pasture waiting for the inevitable call to head to the barn for the evening milking. Unmanned fresh vegetable and fruit stands set up at the end of long farm laneways where customers are trusted to leave the correct change.
It all sounds like a bit of a throwback to another era, doesn’t it? Well, as steeped in tradition as Huron County residents are they aren’t afraid to embrace the modern age. And as agriculture production evolves so does their way of life. There are few places in Ontario more adaptable than Huron County and both agri-tourism and eco-tourism are part of that evolution. Mixed in with the fields of soybeans, grains, and corn those out for a drive will also discover fields of hops, grapes, sunflowers and lavender.
So welcome to Huron County – our residents are happy to share all the blessings, bounty and abundance that can be found within these borders. We invite you to stay awhile, breathe deeply, walk barefoot on the beach, savour a sunset and relax. You’ve earned this time. You are on vacation and you couldn’t have chosen a greater place to spend it!
