The major industries of the county are agriculture, forest products, manufacturing, and education. Western Oregon University is located in Monmouth.

It could be a roadside farmstand selling fresh fruits and vegetables, a fall harvest festival with corn mazes and a pumpkin patch, or even a bed andbreakfast offering a "hands-on" experience.
