Yates County borders the three glorious Finger Lakes - Seneca, Keuka, and Canandaigua - and is home to some of the region's finest wineries. It is located forty five miles southeast of Rochester and fifty miles southwest of Syracuse. There are four villages and nine townships within the county with a population of approximately 24,600. Penn Yan, the largest of the four villages, is located at the north end of the east branch of Keuka Lake. The topography varies from steep hills and valleys in the western townships of the county to relatively flat land in the northern township to gently rolling hills and valleys in the south, east, and central portions. The county is host to a large agricultural base that also includes a thriving Mennonite population. Some of the various types of agriculture include dairy and crop farms, grape vineyards, and apple orchards. The scenic lakes and bustling wine industry make Yates County and the surrounding lakes a popular and vibrant tourist destination in the summer and fall months.
