The Yakima Valley lies in Central Washington, 2 1/2 hours by car east of Seattle. The 100-mile valley stretch between Selah to Prosser along the I-82 highway is one of the top growing regions in the world for hops, apples and grapes. While these crops are what make the Yakima Valley famous, other fruit, produce, livestock, poultry and goods from those commodities make this area exceptional.
The Yakima Valley’s unique growing conditions—dry climate, rich volcanic soil, advanced growing techniques and water from reservoirs—are what farmers, ranchers, growers and gardeners rely on for all of the varieties of food grown, raised, and made here.
