The Grown in Georgina project and campaign encourages collaboration and tourism partnership building and promotes local exploration of agri-businesses. Since the launch of the Georgina Farmers' Market and Field to Table event, the Town has witnessed Georgina’s agri-food sector flourish. Local farms rely on and support each other to sell their products, growers and food manufacturers are selling their products in local stores, and restaurants are teaming up with growers to prepare the ultimate “local” dish. These collaborations have resulted in cross-promotion, increased revenue and positioning Georgina as a thriving agriculture community.
“It has been such a pleasure to work with so many community partners here in Georgina. Whether it is buying produce from Elmgrove Collective, getting strawberries and apples from Homestead Orchards or flowers from Cloverhill Flowers, it has really expanded what we are able to offer to our basket program members,” said Michael, agri-preneur at ClearWater Farm.“Our farm stand is stocked with local maple syrup from Howard’s Farm, honey from Hiveshare, butter tarts from Moe’s Tarts, meat from the Queensway Marketplace, and so much more to make for a truly local shopping experience. As a farm, we love seeing our produce on the menu at Elpida Cafe and the Briars Golf Club and are excited to start working with more of the great restaurants here in Georgina next year.”
