Strawberry farming is responsible for elevating the quality of life throughout California’s central coast. With the best climate in the world for sustainably growing strawberries, California leads the United States and the world in strawberry production. Strawberry farming has a $3.4 billion economic impact in the regions where they grow best, creating jobs and generating revenue beyond the farm. For every farm dollar made, 97 cents is invested back into the community.
