Ontario’s Northern Agriculture
Farms, Markets, & Cheese, of Course
If you’re heading north for small-town – or even big-city – farms and fun, you won’t be disappointed in northern Ontario.
The largest city in the northwestern Ontario, Thunder Bay features plenty of agricultural adventure in, and just outside of, the city.
Don’t miss the Thunder Bay Country Market, the Thunder Bay Farmers' Market, and especially the Thunder Oak Cheese Farm – where you can grab the best gouda around.
Farmsteads just outside of the Thunder Bay metropolitan area include Sleepy G Farm, Sandy Acres Farms, and Mile Hill Farms.
If you’re looking for a visit, head to Belluz Farms to pick your own fruits and veggies, or check out Gammondale Farm Family Fun for family-friendly events like the Easter Festival & Egg Hunt, Pumpkinfest, and holiday sleigh rides.
More markets, farms, and farmers’ markets are found throughout northern Ontario. Don’t miss the Cochrane Farmers' Market in Cochrane, or the annual Blueberry Festival in Sioux Lookout come August. If Kenora’s in your plans, head to the Whitecap Pavilion on the Winkler Harbourfront for the Matiowski Farmers' Market – held Wednesday mornings from June to October.
Dryden is an agritourism town is ever there was one. Check out the Cloverbelt Country Farmer's Market at the Dryden Arena parking lot on second Thursdays, and Saturdays at the Oxdrift Community Hall – both held from June through September. Another agritourist spot is the Eglis's Sheep Farm & Animal Park – featuring sheepskin products and more in one of the largest wool and sheepskin shops in Canada.
