Agricultural wonders fill the Finger Lakes region, and Yates County is the heart of it all.

As you tour through the area, you’ll find that you can immerse yourself in one of the most diversified agricultural areas of New York State.

Drive through our countryside’s and discover farm stands, quaint country markets and New York State’s first and still largest, rural market, The Windmill Farm & Craft Market.

We have a variety of bounty here when it comes to locally grown produce depending on the season. Together with Yates County Cooperative Extension, we produced a local comprehensive food guide, The Taste of Yates, that gives all the information about what’s available around here and when. The buy local initiative runs deep here – and always will.

Many restaurants also use the local products produced within the region to create delicious farm-to-table cuisine.
