Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Grey County is home to exceptional innovation in agriculture, food, and rural entrepreneurship. We work with leaders at home and abroad to make sure we're delivering the tools that our communities and businesses need to succeed. That's why we're shining a spotlight on creative technological innovation in agriculture with a new event you won't want to miss: 

Ag 4.0: The Next Big Thing is a two-day Summit and Innovation Tour that will provide opportunities for producers to learn from fellow agricultural innovators and technology leaders, as well as create an environment where agricultural and food producers can connect and problem-solve with professionals from the creative and technological fields.
