This Saturday, May 27, will be a beautiful one. It�s the seventh annual Taste Real Spring Rural Romp at Wellington County! This means a day full of food, farms and fun.
Get out of the city and discover the county at your own pace with a self-guided tour through the 13 participating farms and artisans. You�ll get a chance to purchase seedlings, flowers, plants, spring produce and local foods. Explore the area and have a talk with the farmers, they will be happy to tell and show you the story behind the food you buy.
Immortalise your day with a felfie (farm-selfie) and spread your happiness with the hashtags #SpringRomp17 and #tastereal. The best snapshots will be rewarded with amazing prizes from the photo contest in three different categories: farmscapes, family fun, and food!
Roll up your sleeves and participate in activities like planting workshops and guided tours. Take your little ones with you, they will have the best time petting farm animals and going on wagon rides.
The best part still has to come! Many rural romp locations will feature ?Must Taste� food samples, freshly prepared by local chefs. Yes, please!
Before you go home, don�t forget to pick up the Local Food Map. This map is a year-round guide to sourcing and experiencing local food in Wellington County. It also includes information on farms, restaurants, retailers, craft breweries. It�s basically your new bible.
