Harvest Ontario 2013 - The Source for Local - Is Now Available
The harvest season is officially underway here in Ontario with the launch of the 13th edition of Harvest Ontario. The handy, digest sized guide is the #1 source for discovering local bounty and includes the largest listings of pick-your-own farms, on-farm markets, meat farms, farmers’ markets, wineries, fairs, craft breweries and more!
Copies of this great attractions guide including money-saving coupons are now available free of charge at your local Home Hardware, Home Building Centre and Home Furniture locations while quantities last.
“We are incredibly lucky here in Ontario when it comes to local bounty,” says Steve Watt, publisher of Harvest Ontario. “Agritourism helps everybody as consumers buy directly from the source and producers benefit from no middle man. Plus it’s a great way to discover, experience and enjoy some great things beyond the city. It really is true… Good things grow – and are produced – in Ontario!”
Harvest Ontario is the only complete source to agritourism attractions in Ontario. Our easy to use guide divides the province using our simplified regions – West, Central, East and North – as well as by attraction type and closest urban centre. You can quickly find a farm or producer close to home, an hour away or across the province. All information is verified from the source so information listed is current. To this end, we are most proud that we are able to call Farmers’ Markets Ontario® and Ontario Farm Fresh partners since inception.
And speaking of great partners, Harvest Ontario is extremely pleased to work together with Home Hardware. Home Hardware is committed to shopping local and plays a large role in supporting grass-roots agriculture in Ontario. As a 100% dealer owned company, they truly are “Home Owners helping homeowners.” You can find your local Home Hardware store by visitingwww.homehardware.com or www.HarvestOntario.com.
