Kawartha Choice FarmFresh Guide now available

Visitors and residents looking for locally grown and produced agricultural products from within Kawartha Lakes and the City & County of Peterborough will now have an easier time with the latest release of the Kawartha Choice FarmFresh Guide to Local Food, Products, and Agri-tainment.

A joint venture between the City’s Economic Development Department and Peterborough Economic Development, the Guide highlights participating members in several categories: Farms, Agri-tainment, Restaurants, Retail, Farmers’ Markets, and Food Services.  It features a regional map showing the locations for each member, as well as a useful product listing to help with locating specific foods and items more quickly.

“Shoppers are very eager to support our local farms and producers,” said Kelly Maloney, Agriculture Development Officer and Acting Director of Economic Development for the City of Kawartha Lakes.  “The Kawartha Choice FarmFresh brand was created to help consumers identify local farm products, and the Guide showcases what a great variety we grow and produce here in the Kawartha buy-local Region.  We are extremely pleased to now have it updated and released.”

“Our region is filled with unique products and food experiences,” added Jamey Coughlin, Peterborough Economic Development’s Business Development Lead – Agriculture and Rural. “The Kawartha Choice FarmFresh Guide is a great way to connect consumers with local growers and producers.”

20,000 copies of the Guide have been printed and are available at City of Kawartha Lakes municipal service centres and libraries, Peterborough Economic Development Offices and the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism Visitor Centre, as well as through local tourism partners and at member locations.  Complementing the updated Guide, a revitalization of the KawarthaChoice.com website is scheduled to begin at the end of July.
