Unique natural landscapes make the Niagara Region an important centre for agriculture and tourism in Canada. Our land base and location allow a wide variety of agricultural products to be grown and raised in Niagara for consumption and export to larger centres. Beyond the substantial economic impacts the agricultural industry has on the Niagara economy, agriculture presents a picturesque landscape for residents and visitors alike to behold and enjoy. The many festivals, events and attractions that are based on agricultural products and operations also lend credence to the importance of the industry to the economic, social and historical nature of Niagara.

Local food is fresher, better tasting, and more nutritious than imported food. Purchasing locally grown and produced food creates more prosperity, food security, and a higher quality of life. It also supports sustainable and humane farming. Buying local reduces transportation, packaging, and storage needs, nullifying the transportation networks of imported foods to lessen fossil fuel consumption, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions (Foodland Ontario Nutrition Guide)
