Perth County launches new “Perth County Farms to Stratford Tables” video series
Perth County Tourism has launched a new video series highlighting regional farm to table experiences in the county.
The official release states that “Destination Stratford, Perth County Tourism, and RTO4 have partnered together” to highlight the experiences through a series of new videos. Tourism Officer, Ashley Lansink, says they wanted to showcase the numerous farm and restaurant experiences that are so close together for tourists and residents to enjoy.
“In Perth County and Stratford, you can have experiences at both ends. You can head to the farm and go on an adventure and make memories there, and then you can head to the table and go to a restaurant, and have an awesome experience there, as well.”
Lansink says beyond advertising all Perth County has to offer to visitors, many local people aren’t maybe aware of how many experiences there are right in their own backyards.
“We have a really awesome farm gate map that showcases different places you can go in Perth County where you can find farm fresh food, countryside experiences and meet the inspiring producers. Right now our map is sitting at over 80 listings.”
On top of the farm to table videos, Perth County Tourism also has a new Discover More Adventures platform, and Lansink says essentially that series highlights some other unique things that are in Perth County that people may not be aware of.
“This can be anything from our latest launch, which is a nature retreat at Wild Rose Sanctuary, which is an off the grid, overnight experience. You can visit an Ojibwe horse sanctuary up in Perth East on the first Saturday of each month, and interact with their farm animals and learn more about the history of Ojibwe horses. We have alpaca walking, we have farm dinners, we have maple syrup tours. There’s just countless unique and exciting things to do in Perth County, so this program tries to shine a light on all of those things that there is to do.”
