Farming in California

We could eat our way from one end of the state to the other on the crops grown in California and never be hungry. Farming and ranching are a big business in California. People here grow more than 350 different crops, including 32 kinds of lettuce. We grow so much food; we send it all around the world. Artichokes, almonds, figs, olives persimmons, pomegranates, raisins and walnuts are just some of the food grown for sale to other places. Next time you are in the store, look at the labels and see where your favorite fruits and vegetables come from. Maybe like me, they started out in California! Purrs, Gulliver
