This is an agricultural gmina and it specialises in orchards. they also grow soft fruit - 10% of all rasberries grown in Poland are grown here. There are 1700 farms, the average size is 5.2 hectares. Most of the soft fruit is sold to Western Europe. Urzedow dates from the 14th century, was located on the way from Cracow to Vilnius. In 1405 the town of Urzedow received location rights, and the next 2oo hundred years was a period of great prosperity. They even had earthern banks surrounding the town, the remains of which are still visible. Like many other places everything broke down in the 17th century and it eventually lost its town rights in 1869. The gmina is very hilly and the highest point is 258m above sea level. Urzedow was very famous for its excellent quality of pottery, it being a speciality for several hundreds of years. But of course the number of families still in the pottery trade is decreasing, but one of the most famous families is that of Gajewski (from Beczyn), and they have been in the pottery business for over 200 years.
