A new tourist guide for residents and visitors about local food in Guelph and Wellington County is out.

Food Experience Guide: Farm and Food Adventures in Wellington County and Guelph is a booklet put out by the Taste Real, the County’s food initiative.

Economic Development Officer Christina Mann said it is a companion piece to their local food map, and has a number of different places to go.

“It provides information on you-pick farm experiences like strawberry picking and pumpkin patches,” said Mann. “It is all packaged into a nice little booklet that people can pick up and explore.”
