I didn't always know how fortunate I was living in Grey County until the moment I realized that we are a four-seasons region of endless adventure. Can it get any better than that!? As someone who radiates the perfect combination of curiosity and hunger, this place I call home, the quaint town of Meaford, Ontario fails to disappoint.
One benefit to living in apple country is the season duration. I have plenty of time to taste test all of the apple varieties offered by the many fruit stands in the area.
From the surface, the countryside often gets pegged as boring but with deeper inspection, it goes without saying that we have a network of communities killing it in all things culinary, agriculture, tourism, artistry, adventure and entrepreneurship. One of my favourite parts about living in Grey County is being mere kilometers away from my next discovery, which is usually in the form of something saucy, cheesy, sugary or straight up edible. Above all, I love taking photos and being able to share my experience with others via social media, which naturally led to the launch of my blog, Lokal Digs.
Lokal Digs is a platform I built to boast about local people, places and things in the heart of Georgian Bay communities. My inspiration was derived from the appreciation I have for the diverse talent that floods our local hubs and rural areas. There is something so simply satisfying about seeing first hand where a product is created, grown, and nurtured. We are helping our hard working neighbors put a dollar in their pocket, all while contributing to our local economic growth.
As a Grey County raised gal, it still amazes me the new businesses that pop up on a daily basis. You think you have seen it all, but that is far from the truth. I am all about the journey, and as exciting as it is for me to explore my local turf, my ultimate goal is to spread the word, and give my readers a truly “lokal” perspective.
