Agriculture is vital to the area and its residents. Pitt Meadows farmers grow a variety of crops but are most famous for specialty crops such as blueberries, cranberries, raspberries and strawberries.

The dairy farmers produce substantial amounts of milk. Other farms support a wide variety of livestock such as beef, pigs, horses, sheep, goats, chickens and turkeys. The Fraser River also supports a commercial fishery. Forest products are a major resource sector.
