The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
Grey County is home to many trailblazing pioneers who’ve left their mark on Canada’s history. There are names you know like John Diefenbaker, Agnes Macphail, Tom Thomson, Nellie McClung, Norman Bethune, The Women’s Institute and Billy Bishop. There are many more to discover, like Beautiful Joe, Seymor Eaton and Nahneebahweequay (Catherine Sutton).
