Gifts of the Land

Rice fields stretch as far as the eyes can see, affirming Pangasinan’s status as one of the nation’s premier rice-producing provinces. Beyond rice, corn cultivation flourishes alongside vegetable farms teeming with tomatoes, eggplants, and bitter gourd.

Orchards bear witness to the bounty of nature, yielding mangoes, citrus fruits, and guavas that enrich the local landscape. Inland bodies of water host thriving aquaculture ventures, with tilapia and bangus farms sustaining the district’s seafood industry.

The district’s agricultural landscape extends beyond crops to encompass vibrant livestock and poultry industries. Poultry farms dot the countryside, supplying fresh chicken and duck products to local markets. Swine production thrives, meeting the demand for pork products, while cattle farming contributes to the availability of beef in communities across the district.

Mills hum with activity, processing harvested grains for distribution and sale, while feed mills churn out essential animal feeds for farms across the region. Small-scale food processing enterprises add value to local produce, crafting rice cakes, banana chips, and dried fish for both local consumption and commercial distribution.

Artisans weave intricate bamboo crafts, fashioning furniture and decor items that showcase the district’s rich cultural heritage. Nipa palm leaves find new life as roofing materials, baskets, and mats, while skilled woodworkers craft furniture and decorative pieces from locally sourced timber.
