SEASONAL PRODUCE

The Southern Forests produces over 50 different types of fruits and vegetables, truffles and boutique produce, dairy, sheep, pork and cattle farms, as well as award-winning wineries and exceptional culinary experiences.  The Southern Forests region is heavily invested in agriculture, with $230 million of agricultural production coming from the region.

The region’s climate and environmental influences allows Southern Forests producers to grow crops during the warmer summer months, advantageously contra-seasonal to many other food producing regions.
