Agricultural Fairs

Visit the local fall fairs for some old-fashioned fun. Farm animals are always a favourite of small children. Fall fairs have evolved and changed since the first fair was held in the area, but the basic ingredients remain the same... animals, flowers, vegetables, baking, kids and lighthearted entertainment. Youngsters take pride in showing their animals and hours can be spent preparing a prize calf or horse for a show.

Please refer to the Grey Highlands' events calendar for a full list of dates.

Farmer`s Markets

Whether you come to the Flesherton & district Farmer`s market or stop at a farmer`s stand, you`ll find local produce, fresh from the farm, throughout the municipality.

Visit the Flesherton Farmer`s Market Web Site for more information.

Farm B&B's

If you want to get up close and personal, there are a number of Farm Bed and Breakfast operations in Grey County.
