Primary Industry

Scugog contains some of the best farmland in Southern Ontario. The geology of the area features loam, clay, and gravel substrata. Seventy-five thousand acres of the township is covered with four hundred farms. The farms bring in over fifty million dollars a year into the local economy. Strawberries, raspberries, and garden vegetables are grown in the area. Also, the micro-climate of The Oak Ridges Moraine allows for fruit orchards, and vineyards. Commercial sugarbush operators produce fine maple products in the spring.
