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.
