Rompers will have the opportunity to meet local farmers, visit farm animals, go on wagon rides, participate in activities and purchase seedlings, flowers, plants, spring produce and local foods.

Taste your way through Northern Wellington County! Many Rural Romp locations will feature ‘Must Taste’ food samples. Rompers are even invited to bring along their yoga mat for a free drop in yoga-on-the-farm class at Arthur Greenhouses.

Each Rural Romp location invites you to ‘dig a little deeper’ and find out the answer to a unique treasure hunt question. In addition, visitors are encouraged to take a felfie (farm-selfie) at each location and share the fun via social media using the hashtags #RuralRomp and #tastereal. All felfies and treasure hunt ballots will be entered in a draw to win local food prizes.

Rompers also have the opportunity to participate in the Spring Romp Photo Contest. Prizes will be awarded for the best photo in three different categories: farmscapes, family fun, and food.

For more information on the photo contest, or to download your copy of the Rural Romp Guide, visit www.tastereal.ca.


While on the Romp, visitors are encouraged to pick up their new Butter Tarts and Buggies brochure – a unique year round guide highlighting experiences across Mapleton, Minto, Wellington North and neighbouring Southgate and West Grey townships.
