There are two specialty crop areas in the Greenbelt; the Niagara Peninsula Tender Fruit and Grape Lands and the Holland Marsh. The delineation of the Niagara Peninsula Tender Fruit and Grape Area (see Schedule 2 of the Greenbelt Plan) is based on provincial soil and climate analysis of current and potential tender fruit and grape production areas. The Holland Marsh boundary is based on provincial muck soil analysis and current agricultural production in both the Region of York and the County of Simcoe (see Schedule 3 of the Greenbelt Plan)
