Leavenworth is nestled in the heart of the Cascades between Seattle and Spokane. It is a semi-arid region, with and average annual rainfall of 9 inches. Ample sunshine is an attractive feature of the area, with most of the total rain/snowfall coming during a six month period from November through April. The mild winter and abundance of sunshine during the growing season (average of 140 frost-free days per year) provide excellent conditions for agricultural production. Regionally the #1 grower for organic pears and numerous orchards of pears, apples, peaches, apricots, cherries, plums and some grapes for local wineries.
