The Elgin County Economic Development Award is given to a business who exemplifies Elgin’s progressive nature, by being an integral part of Elgin County’s Economic Development & Tourism programming.
Cindy Bircham of Elgin Harvest is a pioneer of promoting and educating on the benefits of locally sourced ingredients. Whenever and wherever possible, the food, preserves and ferments she prepared are composed from high quality ingredients grown in her own gardens or from local farms. From her Tuesday Bake Day to her wood oven pizzas offered at Railway City Brewery, Cindy has greatly raised the profile of purchasing local and the benefits of supporting your local farmer and we are fortunate to have her in our community. Congrats and thank you Cindy!
