What Bert Has To Say About Yakima Metro Area


Agriculture is the dominating influence in Yakima, a city located at the eastern base of the Cascade Range. Good soil, sunny days, and irrigation from the Yakima River support the area’s many orchards, which produce apples, pears, peaches, and other fruits. The city has a plain small-town character, although a large Hispanic population attracted by farm labor adds a hint of cultural diversity.
