About Picton

Picton is in the principal town in Prince Edward County (the “County”), an island of over 1,000 square kilometres in Lake Ontario, about 2.5 hours east of Toronto, an hour west of Kingston, and 3 hours southwest of Ottawa and is close to the U.S. border.  It's an ideal location for entrepreneurs interested in a life-work balance with convenient access to markets by train or car, while enjoying the unique charm of a non-urban lifestyle.

The county has become well-known for its quality of life. Rich in tradition, it is also Ontario’s newest wine-producing region with more than thirty new wineries. It supports many local organic food growers, a strong arts community, thriving tourism based on its great beaches and boating, and many unique events and attractions.
