Agritourism

Homegrown Goodness Direct from the Farm

For a taste of the Wenatchee Valley’s bounty, look no further than the small farms and fruit stands that you see along the road. Take a scenic drive through our valley and enjoy the spectacular beauty of our farmlands; stop at one of our many roadside stands and savor the large variety of offerings.

Phone ahead to learn about crop availability; harvest dates can vary by as much as two weeks from year to year. Many farms sell to drop-in visitors even if there is no stand.

The Wenatchee Valley and surrounding areas are ripe with Ag tourism opportunities. Plan a trip and tour the many Fruit Stands, Wineries, and Farmland Activities throughout North Central Washington.

Chelan County is well-known for its tree fruit. The apple, pear, and cherry blossoms of spring and the summer and fall fruit stands are major attractions for residents and visitors alike. Orchards are prominent where irrigation water is available in the Columbia, Wenatchee, and Entiat river valleys and uplands and in the Lake Chelan area. In 2002, the total market value of agricultural products sold was more than $169 million, with almost $163.8 million (97 percent) from the sale of tree fruits (2002 Census of Agriculture).

The first commercial apple orchard in Chelan County was reportedly planted in 1884 (Luce, No date). The number of orchards significantly increased as irrigation ditches were dug and began providing water. Completion of the Highline Canal in 1904 resulted in the watering of 9,500 acres (Luce, No date). Over time, tree fruit (apples in particular) dominated the county’s agricultural industrial base (Chelan and Douglas County Profile, 2002). Chelan County now ranks first in the state for pear production, second for sweet cherries, and fourth for apples. The top crop items by acreage are: apples at 14,195 acres; pears at 11,134 acres; sweet cherries at 6,841 acres; all wheat for grain at 1,978 acres; and forage at 1,840 acres. The total value of all agricultural products sold ranks ninth in the state (2002 Census of Agriculture). More than 99 percent of the tree fruit crop is exported out of the county, with approximately 30 percent exported out of the country (Smith, 2004).

Chelan County apple growers were hit hard in the mid to late 1990s by changes in the national and international markets. The fall of the Southeast Asian economy, concern over pesticide use, a shift in consumer preference toward newer varieties of Red Delicious and other apples, and increased imports of apples and Chinese frozen apple concentrate are among these changes. Statewide, exports dropped 40 percent (Hurlburt, 2004). Following grower, warehousing, and processing consolidation, the industry is adapting to a changing market, although currently at lower returns. Many apple growers have switched to other varieties; others quit farming. Some acreage is converting to wine grapes. Wineries, orchards, fruit stands, vineyards, nurseries, (along with other retail businesses), and restaurants and lodging are becoming a successful part of a burgeoning agro-tourism.

As in other farming areas across Washington and the country, the amount of farmland in Chelan County has dropped over the last 45 years. 2002 Census of Agriculture figures show the number of acres of farmland in Chelan County peaked in 1959. The average size of a farm in Chelan County is 94 acres, and 69 percent of farms are 49 acres or less.

’37 Cellars Winery

8210 Dempsey Road | Leavenworth, Washington 98826
509-548-8663

’37 Cellars Winery came about when Chuck and I (Frank),  two brother-in-laws, decided that we wanted to make our own ultra-premium, hand-crafted wine so that we could enjoy more of it, and share it with friends. After a couple of years of doing this, our passion and desire to make more wine and make it available to other people, led to the formation of a new Washington State winery  called ’37 Cellars.  This has something to do with guitars, just sayin’.  Our wines can be tasted at The Chamber Tasting Room in downtown Wenatchee located at 1 S Wenatchee Avenue. 509.662 2116.

Malaga Springs Winery is located along the steep rocky slopes of the Columbia River at the base of the magnificent basalt columns from grapes brought here from Spain to supply the railroad builders in the late 1800’s.

The winery is one of the smallest in the state, and steps in the care of the grapes as well as the making of the wines are done by us, and by hand. This attention to detail and knowledge of each individual grape plant, along with the handmade philosophy that guides our nondisrupt farming techniques produces wines that are truly unique and reflective of the soils, climate, attitude, and wine making style that we employ.We offer a wide range of white and red wines.  All are hand crafted in small batches, made using sustainable wine making as well as farming techniques.  Lots of elbow grease…but fun.

Martin Scott Winery – East Wenatchee

3400 S. E. 10th Street | East Wenatchee, Washington 98802
509-885 5485

Martin-Scott Winery, located in East Wenatchee, Washington, is a marriage of our best efforts and assets. We feature small quantities of handcrafted wines. The fruit comes from our home vineyard in East Wenatchee, high on a bluff, south-facing, above the Columbia River and from grapes grown in the prime grape growing region of the Columbia Valley in South Central Washington State near Mattawa. The Olympic and Cascade Mountains provide a barrier to coastal precipitation leaving an average rainfall of 8 inches per year. With this dry, desert condition, plant vigor, canopy and fruit quality can be successfully controlled. Sudden Falls beckon the plants into dormancy and winter cold inhibits pests, thus encouraging integrated pest management and modest use of chemicals.

Tasting Room Hours are Friday, Saturday, 12-5pm, Sunday 12-4pm

There are several places a person can reach through the center of the tree with a hand. These trees have been a staple of the property for generations.

Wenatchee Valley Brewing Company

7 North Worthen | Wenatchee, WA 98801
509.888.8088

Dan Bass, and his son Kenton, started brewing with cousin, Jesse Butcher, in their garage a few years ago. As they brewed together, they realized how great the beer was and the idea started forming of opening a brewery. Once the beer was shared with other family members and friends, with rave reviews, the idea became real and the talk began as did the research, into opening a family run brewery.

A few years later, with a lot of support from friends, family, and the encouragement from the community we started to really move forward with Wenatchee Valley Brewing Co. Once the space in the Pybus Public Market opened up, The Brew Pub coming first became our main focus.

Family Brewing Quality Craft Beer, is just who we are!
