Family-Grown in Huron-Kinloss

Huron-Kinloss, in the heart of Bruce County's food region, is where you'll find all the ingredients you need to grow or expand your business - especially any business related to food. Why is that? Because our soil, our climate, our expertise and our care for amazing, freshly grown-food is a family tradition going back generations here. And that translates into opportunities for anyone who believes the food economy holds bright promise in the years ahead.

Fresh, family-grown and raised produce and livestock along with local food processing expertise and municipal support are in ample supply in Huron-Kinloss: This is where you find the ingredients for growing businesses.

Agri-Food Business Stakeholders Group

The Township of Huron-Kinloss Economic Development Team meets frequently with members of the Huron-Kinloss agri-food industry to provide support and assist with initiatives to strengthen and grow this sector.

Recent Initiatives:

  • Food Safety Regulations Seminar - on April 25th, the Township of Huron-Kinloss partnered with Bruce County to offer this seminar. We had over 15 attendees and representatives from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Grey Bruce Health Unit provided some great information about food labelling and other regulations and were able to answer questions from local food producers and restaurant owners. Unfortunately our representative from OMAFRA was not able to attend but we are hoping to host another session to inform business owners about regulations through OMAFRA. The Minutes from this Seminar are available on the right side of this page.

  • Roll-Up Banners - The Township has produced a series of roll-up banners that feature Huron-Kinloss food producers and restaurants. These banners are placed at different businesses and attractions across Huron-Kinloss (and beyond).

  • Reusable Bags - Huron-Kinloss food producers can apply now to recieve free reusable bags to give out to customers. The application form is available at the right side of this page.

  • "Family Grown" Icon - Huron-Kinloss food producers can apply now to use the "Family Grown" icon that appears at the top of this page. The application form is available at the right side of this page.
