The climate is so good, in fact, that the valley had an active agricultural industry around the turn of the century. The Rogue Valley is still known as "pear country," and you can see trees from the old orchards around the Medford-Ashland area. The climate is also conducive to growing grapes, and we have many Wineries and Vineyards here. See our Wineries Page.
