Road To Cultivate

FOR CULTIVATE, local food means more than an efficient way to fill your belly. It's about strengthening community and local economy. It's about knowing where your food comes from and the farmer who put their time and effort into it.

In this guide you'll find farm gate sales stands, farmer's markets, unique farm experiences and farm-to-table food service. The growing season is springing to life, so throw on your boots and start the car! This region is rich in agriculture, stunning views and brilliant personalities, and, together, they make life taste great! On the Road To Cultivate, you can try all our rural neighbourhood has to offer. Be sure to come back for the big harvest season bash — Cultivate: A Festival of Food & Drink is happening from September 20 to 22 in beautiful downtown Port Hope!

Eat well and live well,
