With the fall weather and spectacular colours comes another unique seasonal experience: the harvest. Bruce County's farmers are hard at work this time of year getting all their crops and growth out of the ground and in front of folks like you. Feel like helping? You can pick your own produce in Paisley! Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples, zucchini, and more are available for you to find, pick, purchase, and prepare all by yourself. This is a unique experience that can help you connect with where your food comes from and gain a greater appreciation for the earth that sustains us.

Paisley features over 7km of trails for you to enjoy. The scenic River Flats Trail goes from one side of town all the way to the other and follows the meandering Saugeen River so you can enjoy the sounds of the flowing water while you take in your beautiful surroundings. Keep your eyes open for birds and other animals in the marshy areas as these areas are filled with biodiversity.  

Along the Bruce County Rail Trail, you can stop on one of two train bridges. These are especially beautiful at sunset where you can watch the light fade over the treetops.
