Tulare County Is better known as the salad bowl of California, The wide variety of vegetation is truly the backbone of the state any season is the perfect season for the required fruit/vegetable connected to that particular season, But what gives Tulare County the diamond in the rough appearance is the promise to become very well financially stable in the agriculture life, not to mention we have the largest farm equipment show IN THE WORLD, that's right visitors from as far as Japan, China, England, even Portugal, just to take a look at the upcoming exhibits surrounding farm equipment along with the latest technology in irrigation if you ever get the chance please visit.
The only thing I would like to see change is the watering rights for the farmers we must find a way to allocate their the demand for water. Thank you
My experience with Tulare, CA has been great! The community is awesome, we are a smaller town so everyone knows each other, which results in better friendships, better communication and improved living conditions. Tulare is a part of Tulare County, we rank #1 as the largest agricultural producers in the nation! So of course being that we rank number 1 in dairy production you can expect to see a lot of dairy's as well as many crops spread out through Tulare County! I love the small town feel, and the many farm animals that are shown once a year in our Tulare County Fair that help contribute to our successful agricultural production. It is the perfect place to raise kids, with just the right mix of city and country living combined! Overall my experience with Tulare, Ca has been amazing!
