About Perth County
Both one of the most prosperous places for agricultural ventures in Ontario and a world-class performing arts hub, Perth County offers the perfect combination of rural and urban amenities for any agri-venture. Tourists come from miles to experience the picturesque and historic towns of Perth nestled in the heart of southwestern Ontario, many flocking to the City of Stratford to catch its Shakespeare festival running annually from May to October. At the same time, Perth County produces some of the highest agricultural outputs in the region and gives farmers quick access to markets with convenient proximity to the major urban centres of London, Kitchener, and Waterloo. Though the region’s soil is conductive to the competitive production of a number of foods, fuels, and fibes, the agricultural industry in the county is centered upon grain and cattle, which account for approximately 40% and 30% of its agricultural outputs, respectively. With four vibrant municipalities, first-class recreational facilities, a myriad of beautiful parks, and-family oriented events Perth County offers you not only boundless agricultural opportunities, but an exciting collection of farming and arts communities waiting to welcome you, your family, and your agribusiness.
