Our warm summer weather and crisp shoulder seasons make our region perfect for growing pears and wine grapes, not to mention apples, cherries and more. In fact, we’re the nation’s #1 grower of organic pears as well. Our fruit stands and farmers market overflow with a bounty of locally grown harvests and our flower farmers and greenhouses showcase the whimsical beauty of an array of flowers, plants, and vegetables to take home with you!
