For this world-renowned resort destination, tourism is the Greater Palm Springs area’s most important industry and dominates the western portion of the Coachella Valley.
However, the second major industry is year-round agriculture, located in one of the driest places in the USA, right here in the eastern Coachella Valley.
Our Agri-Tours takes us to the heart of the growing area. Get a close up look of how local farmers plant, cultivate and harvest massive crops of vegetables and fruit. See hundreds of acres of our number one crop, table grapes; groves of grapefruit, lemons, oranges and limes; majestic fields of row-crop vegetables; and the largest date production and harvest in the western world.
