In Hensall, Our Community Matters
World Class Agriculture
Firmly rooted in the heart of Huron County’s rich agricultural land, Hensall is home to three large processing facilities: Thompsons Limited, Hensall Co-op and Cook’s Division of Parrish & Heimbecker Ltd. Here, thousands of tons of beans are annually processed, packaged and shipped globally.
Hensall’s stature as the White Bean Capital of Canada is built on growth and development that began in the 1800s with traditional farming methods. Today, of course, state-of-the-art technology is what keeps us competitive and enables us to help feed the world!
Tourism and Recreation
Hensall is more than world-class agriculture. We’re close to the recreational joys of sparkling Lake Huron with its boating, fishing and beach attractions. Pinery Provincial Park offers some of Ontario’s best year-round camping and other exhilarating outdoor activities. Flea markets, farmers’ markets, restaurants and art galleries abound along ‘Ontario’s West Coast’ ~ and when you visit Hensall, you’re only half an hour away from renowned live theatre in Stratford, Blyth, Grand Bend, or enjoy a performance at our very own Hensall Heritage Hall!
