Woodland, CA is the epicenter of all things tomato. Over a $100 million cash crop with over 42,000 acres of pure tomato production, Yolo County is both producer and processor. From July to October, large tomato processing plants slice, dice, crush, and cook this multi-purpose product stocking the shelves of supermarkets and restaurants around the country.
The climate and soils that make this an ideal region for commercial production apply as well to the home garden, and tomatoes continue to be the most popular plant in the garden. Every summer gardeners look forward to those first tasty vine ripened tomatoes.
