​The first of the area’s vineyards, Hargrave, was founded in 1974, and today continues as Castello De Borghese. The vineyards and wineries are an important part of the area’s economy. Many multi-generational family farms are still in operation throughout the region as well, and their farmstands are a popular attraction. During the Fall Harvest Season many of the farms host pumpkin picking and other attractions revolving around the harvest theme.
