Agricultural tourism cultivates business for local food producers

In an area with natural beauty, nice weather and a long history of agriculture, some hope the farm will bring tourists to North Central Washington. Farms and orchards that once simply supplied jobs and food have become entertainment and educational outlets for tourists interested in knowing where and how food is made. For Chuck and Sharon Podlich, owners of Orondo Cider Works and more than 200 acres of orchards in the Orondo area, tourist dollars bring a little more stability to traditional orchard work. Instead of relying on weather or market conditions to make a living, their store, which offers orchard and cider-pressing tours, can make up for orchard losses.
