The Township straddles the Frontenac Axis, a geological formation linking the Canadian Shield to New York’s Adirondack Mountains. This accounts for unrivaled natural beauty, a focal point for the hospitality industry. Despite rugged geography, beef, dairy, sheep and cash crops thrive. In fact, enterprising township farmers contribute sales of pedigree livestock, hay, even frozen bovine embryos to foreign markets. It is proclaimed proudly that in agriculture "Leeds leads."
