Local food, agriculture highlighted during Rural Romp

WELLINGTON CTY. - The seventh annual Spring Rural Romp will be held on May 27, giving visitors a taste of local food, an opportunity to experience local agriculture and find the story behind their food.

Thirteen locations  on the tour include farms, markets, garden centres and a bed and breakfast in Mapleton, Minto and Wellington North.

Visitors can begin their free, self-guided tour at any of the participating locations between 10am and 4pm.

Rompers will have the opportunity to meet local farmers, visit farm animals, go on wagon rides, participate in activities and purchase seedlings, flowers, plants, spring produce and local foods.

Visitors are encouraged to take a felfie (farm-selfie) at each location and share the fun via social media using the hashtags #SpringRomp17 and #tastereal. All selfies will be entered in a draw to win a local food prize.

Rompers also have the opportunity to participate in the Spring Romp Photo Contest. Prizes will be awarded for the best photo in three different categories: farmscapes, family fun and food.

For more information on the photo contest, or to download a Rural Romp guide, visit

Rompers will be able to pick up the 2017/2018 Guelph Wellington Local Food Map.
