We have a sweet spot for California because it is where our team spent most of their life farming. California is the largest agricultural producer in the United States but only has 4% of the farms. Many of our clients specialize in Almond or Pistachio farming. California is the largest exporter of Almonds in the world and the number 1 dairy state in the US. One of only five agricultural regions in the world with a Mediterranean-growing climate, California produces more than 400 animal and plant commodities annually
One of our favorite past times is driving home and picking up a flat of strawberries from a farm along side the road. California is the nation’s leading producer of strawberries, averaging 1.4 billion pounds of strawberries or 83% of the country’s total fresh and frozen strawberry production!
