Summer

Is there anything better than summer in rural Ontario? Take a back roads drive to farmers markets, enjoy drinks and a great meal on the patio, explore new experiences like picnicking in a blueberry patch or cutting your own flowers. It's time to get outside in the wide open spaces of Oxford County and enjoy every last drop of the season.
