Tulare County Agriculture

Tulare County farmers produce more dairy products than any other growing region in the world, and the wholesale value of local farm production valued in excess of $5 billion in 2008, the County is the second most productive farming region in the nation.

Got milk? Tulare County sure does. Oranges? Our County produces the majority of America’s fresh eating oranges. In total, local farmers produce more than 250 different crops!  To better educate the public about the nutritional value of eating healthy, fresh produce, and knowing where local farm products come from, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors has launched Taste Tulare County, a program that emphasizes: Buy Local! Eat Healthy!

Our fertile soil and moderate climate allows local farmers to grow exceptional, high quality food that is the envy of the world. We exported food and fiber to more than 80 countries in 2008 alone. Tulare County is also home to the World Ag Expo, the world’s largest agricultural trade show, held every February in Tulare, CA.
