Local food the focus in Hastings County

Ontario is boosting grassroots marketing efforts for Ontario foods and strengthening the economy in Hastings County by encouraging more residents and businesses to buy locally grown food.

Harvest Hastings is a three-year project to increase the availability of local food in the county. It involves identifying Hastings as a diverse and rich food producing region, and branding these foods through labelling, agri-tourism and education efforts.
