Agriculture Crop Reports

Every year, the county Agricultural Commissioner prepares a report on the prior year's agricultural production for the State of California and for the county's Board of Supervisors. Placer County has a long and proud history of agricultural activity, starting before the birth of the county in 1851 and continuing to this day. Crops include Placer's renowned mandarin oranges, timber, rice, flowers, and lots of fresh produce featured in local farmers' markets. County ranchers raise poultry, cattle, and sheep.
