Well I am actually learning about that right now, but I actually had the same question. I am pretty sure that it is the land and climate. Because the land is flat to rolling, and has many fertile soils, which means a great variety of crops. Glaciers smoothed out the land as they melted. The temperature is overall warm, but the interior is a more harsh and colder climate. There are wide temperature ranges over the year.
