LOCAL PRODUCERS

When you buy “fresh” vegetables or fruit from the grocery store, even in-season, that food may have traveled over 2000 km to get to your plate. This uses up a lot of fossil fuel. It takes 435 calories of energy, for example, to transport a 7-calorie strawberry from California to Perth.
Buying locally-produced goods such as fruits, vegetables, plants, syrup, and honey not only benefits not only you and your family, it also helps to sustain our community, our local economy, and the planet! As the demand for local food continues to grow, the Lanark County Harvest Festival provides people with a direct connection to the quality of local producers.

LOCAL ARTISANS

In your community, local artisans produce an abundance of beautiful furniture, pottery, artwork, and home décor items. Much like our local producers, local artisans play a key role in sustaining our quality of life. When you buy local you know how the products are made, and their quality. Buying locally-produced goods AND locally made products helps to support our neighbours and to sustain our community, our local economy, and the planet!
