Business and Industry

The climate of the area brings mild winters, pleasant summers and lingering spring and fall seasons.

An average annual temperature of approximately 61 degrees allows the growing season to exceed 253 days. The moderate climate, combined with the richness of the soil, contributes greatly to the county’s more than $26.5 million agricultural industry, which includes the production of cotton, beef, nursery stock, dairy farming, pecans, fruits and vegetables.

Economic growth has remained rather constant while morphing from manufacturing to technology industries associated with automobile suppliers and aircraft manufacturing as well as information technology. A swell of professionally licensed occupants has populated the historic downtown section of Wetumpka in the shadow of the Elmore County Courthouse. A growing emphasis on tourism has seen the development of numerous related cottage industries.
