Frontenac County has always been proud of its early farm history; the region had a reputation for great hunting and fishing before European settlers arrived.
Today, the commitment to a diverse range of farming activities continues, and every year more young farmers are rebuilding on these agricultural roots to create unique, small scale farms, supporting the local restaurants and retailers in the Kingston-Frontenac region. 

And we have our share of restaurants, cafes, and farmers markets too. Whether you're looking for a lakeside patio meal on Wolfe Island, to source local ingredients, get some farm fresh produce, or stop in for a quick coffee and baked good, the options are vast in Frontenac.
