Agriculture in Ventura County

One of Ventura County’s most popular—and profitable—crops is strawberries. You can see the fields in their tidy rows, covered in plastic, any time you travel a short distance from downtown Ventura.

As we get ready to celebrate the unofficial end of summer on Labor Day, let us acknowledge all those workers we rarely see who have such an impact on our lives.

Ventura has a long agricultural history, and E.P. Foster Library has some titles on the subject that you might find interesting.
