Georgina has more than 100 farms covering 21,220 acres of farmland and is a major contributor to the York Region's agriculture sector. The Town has many farms that sell directly to consumers, most of them selling unprocessed agricultural produce through farm gate sales, stands and kiosks—View York Region's 2021 Census of Agriculture Summary for more statistics.

Georgina's Farm Tour 

The Field to Table event brings awareness to Georgina's vibrant agriculture community in late August. Local farms open their gates to the public where they can purchase fresh products and learn about sustainable agriculture. 

ClearWater Farm 

Georgina plays an important part in York Region's Agriculture and Agri-Food Strategy. ClearWater Farm has been featured by the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and Dine magazine, among others. The farm's contribution to our local economy, their experiential learning activities, sustainable growing and agri-preneur training program have shone a spotlight on Georgina. A work in progress - ClearWater Farm is part of a forward-thinking movement that will continue to pave the way in agri-tourism and innovative outdoor learning experiences.

Georgina Farmers' Market

The Georgina Farmers' Market features more than 40 vendors offering a wide range of local products, including produce, meats, baked goods and crafts. The event, located at the Link in Sutton, starts during the long weekend in May and runs until October. Market ambassador, Natalia Zammitti, believes that working together and supporting local businesses is crucial in building a strong and vibrant community. Visit their website for more information and vendor applications.

Grown in Georgina

Grown in Georgina is a campaign that promotes local exploration of agri-businesses. It includes promoting the Georgina Farmers' Market and the Field to Table farm tour. The campaign aims to position Georgina as a thriving agriculture community and increase awareness of the Town's agri-food businesses. The Town of Georgina captured a platinum MarCom Award for the Grown in Georgina campaign in 2021. Platinum awards are presented to entries that have exceeded the highest standards of the industry.
