Oley is a township in Berks County, in the Reading metro area. The community name derives from Algonquian for “valley.” Oley is the small village located at the center of the Oley Valley. It sits at the intersection of Route 73 and Route 662. It’s a great place to live and work, but you and your loved ones may be at risk due to the prevalence of radon in Oley.
Radon is a radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium found in trace amounts in soil, rock, and water. Radon is the main source of our exposure to all radiation. The US Surgeon General and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have determined that radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing for Radon is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.
Oley is known for The Oley Fair. The Fair has become a community tradition and some people work hard for the entire year to grow a prize-winning fruit or vegetable. The Fair offers the people of the Valley an opportunity to show their prize-winning livestock, produce, and handiwork. The Fair is also famous for its food. All the food is prepared by volunteers, not commercial vendors, and is cooked in traditional Pennsylvania Dutch style.
