About The County.
Prince Edward County is an island in Lake Ontario where you go to fall in love with food, nature, art and community all over again. We’re a cluster of small hamlets and villages with deep roots in farming and agriculture, industry and trade through our waterways, and unique natural and geological formations between our 800km of shoreline. You may have just found us but we’ve been welcoming visitors to our beaches for almost 200 years. Today ‘The County’ is home to artists, entrepreneurs, farmers, wine makers, chefs and all sorts of creative and passionate folks looking to be a part of the rural renaissance taking place here. We have a reputation for capturing hearts and imaginations so you may find yourself visiting for the weekend but considering staying for a lifetime.
