Norfolk County sits about five miles inland from Lake Erie and it has a great deal of history associated with it. It started with Lieutenant-Governor, John Graves Simcoe dividing Upper and Lower Canada into regions pre-Confederation in the late 1790’s.
The region had and still has rich soil for farming a remnant of the Ice Age 12,000 years ago when glaciers dragged sandy loam from northern parts of Ontario and deposited along the shore of Lake Erie before the glacier melted and created Lake Erie. Apart from cash crops; the claim to fame for Norfolk County was tobacco. The leaf was farmed for well over 100 years and the area was Canada’s tobacco belt. Now that smoking has gone out of fashion, one of the oldest farms left in Norfolk County is Dennis’ Horseradish and the farm has national recognition for the quality of the horseradish grown in the area. Norfolk County holds a World Biosphere Reserve designation due to the migration of birds through the area at Long Point. Long Point is 12 miles of pristine white sand that juts out into Lake Erie and it is a hidden gem as a beach and summer attraction in Norfolk County.
