Yosemite Area Agri-Tourism

Madera County Is . . .


Agritourism - Pomegranates in MaderaFrom the fertile soils of the San Joaquin valley and the Sierra Nevada Foothills come many of the items on your dinner table. A drive through the countryside reveals beautiful farms growing almonds, pistachios, grapes, pomegranates and many more. Sprawling ranches offer ample grazing land for cattle and other animals. Madera County feeds much of the nation and the world. 

Not only can our farms and ranches feed your body, but they can feed your sense of adventure and your soul. Visit a working pomegranate farm to see firsthand the versatility of this heart-healthy fruit. Attend one of the biggest cattle auctions and see the excitement as bidders vie for prize animals, or stop along one of the many farmers' markets to sample the fruits, nuts and more of our farmers labor. Your body will thank you, as will your spirit.
