Nature Trails near Harrow, Ontario

Harrow is located in the amalgamated community of the Town of Essex.

Harrow serves the agricultural community and is home to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's research centre for greenhouse vegetables and field crops. This urban centre offers a number of local shops and services. For almost 160 years, it has hosted the Harrow Fair every Labour Day weekend. As one of Ontario's oldest country fairs, the Harrow Fair has stayed true to its rural heritage with its strong emphasis on highlighting and honouring the products of our farmers.

As one of Canada's most southerly municipalities, Essex enjoys hot summers and mild winters. Our rich agricultural lands are some of the most productive in the province and our numerous wineries have a well-deserved national reputation. Housing prices are amongst the lowest in Canada and our well-tended urban areas, prosperous farm community and locational advantages are major attractions to new residents. In 2012, the Town was named one of the safest places to live in Canada.

The Town of Essex, population 20,427 (Source: 2016 Census), comprises four urban communities - Essex Centre, Harrow, Colchester and McGregor - and a large agricultural hinterland with field crop production, horse farms and vineyards.
