​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Oro-Medonte Agritourism Banner


The Province of Ontario defines agritourism as “those farm-related tourism uses, that promote the enjoyment, education or activities related to​ the farm operation, including limited accommodation such as a bed and breakfast​". Agritourism businesses can include (but are not limited to) on-farm retail, farm tours, accommodations such as bed and breakfasts, or recreation activites ​such as horseback riding. Oro-Medonte is a Farm Fresh Community, we are a rural municipality and agriculture is an important part of the natural and cultural history and our future.
