Montgomery County's Rural Side
With nearly a third of it’s 507-square-miles reserved for agricultural use, Montgomery County offers an abundance of pick-your-own-farms, vineyards, farm breweries, farm tours, markets and so much more!
Visit farms in the 93,000-acre Agricultural Reserve in the spring for pick-your-own strawberries, blueberries, tart cherries, blackberries, red raspberries, and tomatoes. In the fall, families head out to the pumpkin patch, and during the holidays, they cut fresh trees. From the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain, hikers can look out over the county’s pastoral patchwork of farms and villages, a countryside view largely unchanged since the 19th century.
