About Midland Food Tours
Meet the Team
Kelly (she/her) - Owner and Founder - Lead Guide
I’m Kelly Kurtz and like many of you, I’m a lover of good eats, a people-engager, a story-gatherer and a tea aficionado. After enjoying seven culinary tours across Canada, the United States and Cartagena, Columbia, I was eager to share the flavours of Midland and North Simcoe’s cuisine with area residents, out-of-towners and tourists from around the globe. With a background in the tourism and hospitality industry, plus 20 years as an educator, it was natural to launch Midland Food Tours in 2021.
Donna (she/her) - Food Tour Guide
Donna has lived in the area for more than 35 years and can’t say enough about the charming town of Midland. She has a background in education and tourism, as well as art and fashion. Donna is passionate about supporting local restaurants and shops and loves exploring the area’s walking and cycling trails. On tour she’ll absolutely delight you with her stories and her storytelling!
Grace (she/her) - Social Media Manager
Grace was born and raised in the Midland area and loves sharing what her hometown has to offer visitors to the area. She is the voice behind our social media accounts, and the artist behind our partner paintings. She currently lives in Toronto, but loves returning to Midland for her longtime favourite restaurants, and to discover exciting new culinary additions to the area.
