Perth South is a great place to live, work, play and visit!

Living in Perth South isn't complete without sampling our outstanding local fare. With abundant agricultural production, Perth South is often referred to as "Ontario's food basket". Perth South is one of the region's main producers of pork, beef, dairy products, corn and organic produce.

Whether you are stopping at a roadside stand or visiting a farmers market, the "Huron -Perth Buy Local Buy Fresh" map is a must have. From locally grown and produced vegetables and fruits, delightful cheeses, meats and maple syrup products; there are always plenty of savoury sensations that are guaranteed to delight your taste buds. Nearly 100 producers are listed on a detailed map of this area.
