Niagara's Summer Bounty
Published on July 13 2011
Happily, for locavores Niagara fruits and vegetables are now in season. Our region is home to over 2,200 farms. Top crops include grapes, peaches, pears, pumpkins & tomatoes. Local farms reporting organic produce (certified & un-certified) number 119. More statistics, including (incredibly) the number of sheep, lambs and bee colonies on census day, are available from the 2006 Census of Agriculture Community Profiles.
