Land for Sale in California

Agriculture plays a huge role in the California economy. The Central Valley, located from Bakersfield up to Sacramento, is the number one dairy product producer in the world. Other commodities include almonds, walnuts, citrus fruit, stone fruit such as apricots, plums, and nectarines, as well as olives, pistachios, and prunes.
