The major towns of Tenterfield, Glen Innes, Inverell, Guyra, Armidale, Uralla and Walcha all support productive rural communities predominantly producing beef, sheep and wool. Significant smaller industries include forestry, apples and stone fruit, potatoes, glasshouse tomatoes, dairy farms, alpacas and cool climate wineries.
