Brookings Flyover 15-1

What is it that draws people here to live, work & play? A good place to start is its natural beauty.

Another place to look is at industry and the jobs it provides. Brookings is fortunate to still have several lumber mills. What I find interesting is the global connection as the mill’s output goes into lumber products for markets around the world.

Another good economic leg is agriculture.

Hilltop 2

The area has a broader base of ag than with just cattle.  There are sheep ranches, row crops and most dominant, Easter Lily bulb farms.

Last but not least, the region is known for its fishing, which at times allows for other activities.

    I’m with Rick on this one, Bill! It’s way too seductive a view of Brookings. And it’s a known fact that Californians have no moral compass! They’ll all be up there like flys on……..well, you get my drift. Thinking of you and Beth, Conad

    Makes me envious. Makes my cotton and soybeans fields pale in comparison.

    Hello Bill;
    Nice area that you live in. What is it, about 3 years ago when you were in Rockford Il.? You camped with us at Pecatonica.
    Anyway, I saw this blog about Brookings. and when I saw your name i had to reply. Beautiful area and lots of amenities.
    Hope our paths cross again sometime.
