The Great River Road - Our Regions

Locally Grown

Whether it’s a famed, sun-ripened, Calhoun County peach or a crisp autumn afternoon at a pumpkin patch, the byway offers a bounty of locally grown produce. Rendleman Orchards has been around since 1873 and offers delicious peaches, nectarines, and apples. Dittmar Farms is a fun fall destination with a pumpkin patch, orchard, hayrides, kids’ activities, and more. Edgewood Orchards grows a dozen different apple varieties, but they’re known more for their delicious apple cider. Farmers’ markets, like the Quad Cities Growers Market, are top places to shop a wide selection of locally grown produce along with handmade crafts and goodies. Sink your teeth into sun ripened, tasty, locally grown goodness all along the byway.
