The 6th Annual Spring Wellington Rural Romp offers locals a chance to take a self-guided tour of farms, nurseries and local food businesses in the area.

On Saturday, May 28th from 10:00 in the morning to 4:00 in the afternoon, you have an unique opportunity to experience the north of Wellington County. Farms, markets, gardens, restaurants and places to stay (in Mapleton, Minto and Wellington North) will open their doors to the public to offer self-guided tours.

Why not spend your day in the countryside, meeting your local farmers and enjoying the first tastes of spring? Take part in educational activities, guided tours, planting workshops, tastings and more! There’s something for the whole family to enjoy.

Share your experience with the organizer, taste•real, by using the hashtag #SpringRomp2016 or giving them a shoutout @tastereal.

Capture all that Wellington County has to offer with a felfie (farm selfie) and share your photos on Twitter or Facebook.

A winner will be chosen amongst all those who submitted an entry to win a local food gift!

Launched back in 2011, taste•real started out as the new branding initiative of Guelph Wellington Local Food developed to support local businesses, farms and producers who are passionate about the way local food is grown, prepared, and how real it tastes! Taste Real is now a County of Wellington initiative, but continues to support the same local businesses, farms and producers.

The mission of taste•real is to support local small businesses and farms to build stronger rural communities and to grow vibrant, local food economies and food tourism destinations in the province.
