The Sacramento region sits on 1.5 million acres of farms and ranches that grow more than 160 crops that are sold locally, nationally, and around the world. California is the nation’s sole exporter of many agricultural commodities, supplying 99% or more of: almonds, artichokes, dates, figs, garlic, olive oil, table grapes, walnuts, pistachios, raisins, olives and olive oil, prunes, and kiwifruit.
