Situated in San Joaquin Valley, Fresno is the top agricultural county in the US. The city of Fresno is a top producer of the food for our nation, and even a large part of the world.
The raisin industry began in Fresno County in 1875. Frances Eisen, a wine aficionado, left his grapes on the vine accidentally and they dried out.
Another part of Fresno’s rich agricultural history is the wheat farming, which was revolutionized when its residents and Moses Church developed irrigation canals.
