Walnuts. Dates. Olives. Artichokes. Just a few of the many U.S. crops grown almost exclusively in California.
California is a global agricultural powerhouse and the nation’s leading agricultural state, producing more farm products than the combined total of its two closest competitors, Texas and Iowa. Increasing development pressures and the difficulty of farming have resulted in an average loss of nearly 40,000 acres of California farmland each year.
We're losing irreplaceable farm and ranch land that grows many of our nation's most beloved foods. We need to act now.
