Wherever you are in the county, a farmers' market or orchard is not too far from you. From spring until late fall, you can find local growers with their canopies and colorful displays of freshly-harvested fruits and vegetables in parks and along winding roads. 


Pick-your-own season starts in June with strawberries and goes through October with apples and pumpkins. If you're lucky enough to visit in the autumn, include a corn maze or hayride in your day and marvel at the changing landscape while enjoying homemade cider and donuts.
