Meet young entrepreneur Olivia Neal, owner of Harold + Ferne: The Local Goods Co. and CDC Success Story!

After receiving a BA in Political Science, Olivia returned to her hometown of Orillia, and it wasn’t long before the artist in her saw a need to display the area’s ever growing community of makers and artisans.

Named after her beloved great grandparents, her business was born a little over a year ago initially showcasing 10 local makers, and has blossomed into one of Orillia’s staple businesses in the creative community, now showcasing over 60 local makers and artisans.

Her business was shortlisted and selected as one of Western Ontario Community Futures regional Success Stories!
