The Bounty of Butte County

Butte County’s deep agricultural roots reach back to the earliest innovations in California farming, from one of the founding fathers of modern California agriculture to the mother of the modern olive oil industry. Today, large and small farms carry on the legacy of quality and innovation that has existed in Butte County for more than 100 years, producing some of the state’s best olive oils, fruit, rice and nuts — and opening their doors for visitors to taste and experience Butte County agriculture.
