Grey County is shining a spotlight on creative technological innovation in agriculture with a new event this November.

Ag 4.0: The Next Big Thing (link is external) will take place November 2-3 in Meaford. The two-day Summit and Innovation Tour will give producers an opportunity to learn from fellow agricultural innovators.  Agricultural and food producers can connect and problem-solve with professionals from the creative and technological fields.

"Grey County is home to exceptional innovation in agriculture, food, and rural entrepreneurship," said Ashleigh Weeden, Project Lead for Grey County's Connected County initiative. "We work actively with leaders at home and abroad to deliver the tools our communities and businesses need to succeed."

Registration is open for this great event with early bird pricing running to the end of summer.
