Oxford County


Welcome to Oxford County - Canada's Dairy Capital and much more! Opportunities abound to connect with Oxford's rich dairy heritage and ingredients that extend far beyond that. 

Seasonal eating is the name of the game here as you explore rural back roads filled with farmland, markets and more. Dutch and Amish influences thrive here and impact the culture surrounding Oxford's unique tastes of place. From locally-raised bison meat and crystallized aged gouda to pick-your-own veggie and berry patches, sustainably sourced meat, local grains from one of Ontario's first organic mills and even maple syrup from a fourth-generation farm- you're sure to find something new to put on your table. 

Want to bring something home with you? No problem! Shopping the local markets and getting to know the farmers here will give you a true appreciation for the passion that goes into growing, raising and creating food. Crunch into juicy local sweet corn, head out on the legenDAIRY Oxford County Cheese Trail or even visit a farm that grows elderberries for syrup. A delicious taste of Oxford is just around the corner. 

Don't want to cook it up yourself? No worries! Check out one of several local restaurants serving up fresh, local ingredients for greener meals including Woodstock's SixThirtyNine, a Feast On® certified restaurant. 

Finally, wind down after your meal with a lovely walk through one of Oxford's scenic Carolinian trails. Pop by a farm stand, grab a treat for a picnic or sign up for an Oxford experience. Enjoy!
