A new digital passport was launched Friday that provides locals and visitors alike the opportunity to learn more about the growing agri-tourism scene in the region and support local while doing so.

The W.E. Heart Local Digital Passport will guide you through the entire region with all the steps to help you create a locally-sourced meal – or purchase one created using locally-sourced ingredients. The 70+ stops include  farms with roadside stands; craft beverage producers; shops, markets and butchers brimming with local produce; restaurants that are sourcing all their ingredients locally.

“Our destination has a much celebrated history with food. By having one of the longest growing seasons in Canada, we are truly blessed with a diverse offering of produce, alongside meat, honey, wine and beer” said Gordon Orr, CEO Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island. “Everyday, our farmers and producers provide authentic, tasty ingredients to locals and visitors alike. With the launch of our digital W.E. Heart Local digital passport, consumers can go on a unique journey through Windsor Essex, tasting the best of what we have to offer.”

The digital passport is free and requires no download to use. Once users have registered they can check in at one of the 70+ participating locations while they take a self-guided tour across the region. And the more they explore the more exclusive offers and incentives they will receive including recipes, reusable produce bags, a barbeque paddle & W.E. Heart Local cap.

The W.E. Heart Local Digital Passport is available at www.weheartlocal.ca.
