Good Food Ideas Videos

Welcome to Caledon’s Good Food Ideas – two videos that help to portray the local food and farming scene in Caledon. Caledon’s Farm to Table looks at a number of different food events, chefs, farms, farmers’ markets, community facilities and what is happening in Caledon. It is why “Caledon is your local food and farming destination in the GTA”.  Caledon’s Local Food Innovators looks at four local farms who have taken it to the next level and created innovative farm markets to showcase their local food.

Filming for the videos was done during Summer and Fall 2011.  The videos were officially launched at on January 24th at the Town Council Meeting.  The Town of Caledon contributed cash for the filming of the videos with equal matching money from the Ontario Market Investment Fund through Sustain Ontario and Powerline Films.  The Caledon Countryside Alliance organized the filming and donated in-kind during filming and editing thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation as part of our Eat Local Caledon grant.

Our Caledon videos are part of a much larger project of 31 videos with 16 partners across the Province.   The Town of Caledon was by far the smallest partner involved.  Thank you to the Town, Sustain Ontario, Powerline Films, the Ontario Market Investment Fund (Government of Ontario), Caledon Countryside Alliance and Ontario Trillium Foundation.  Most of all thanks to our local farmers, producers, chefs, restaurants, farmers’ markets, Mills, community organizations, market goers and devoted Caledon foodies.

Truly, it is Caledon’s time to be everybody’s local food and farming destination in the GTA. Enjoy!
