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.
