Farming & Ranching

San Diego County is home to the largest number of small farms as well as the largest number of organic producers out of any county in the United States.

Agriculture is vital to our region’s economy and culture, and yet the amount of agricultural land in use decreases every year due to lack of support and value for this key industry. The RCD is committed to supporting farmers and ranchers by monitoring soil healthy and water efficiency, educating about on-farm conservation practices, and assisting with funding applications.
