History & HeritageSteeped in
Although agriculture is the 5th largest industry in Percy Ward, many of our local farm families supplement their agricultural income with off-farm employment. Farmers, young and old, inexperienced, hobby and veteran, gather at the Warkworth Farm Supply to seek advice, purchase supplies, and promote their products. Organizations, that traditionally were a part of agriculture, such as 4-H and Women’s Institute, open their doors to all members of the community. On the second full weekend in March maple syrup production is highlighted at the Warkworth Maple Syrup Festival. In August many of the various sectors of agriculture can be visited while on tour with Rural Ramble. The Percy Agricultural Society organizes the Warkworth Fall Fair, held each year on the weekend in September following Labour Day.
Agriculture is alive and well in the countryside surrounding Warkworth. Do drop by for a taste of our heritage.
