Happy Ag Day! The California Department of Food and Agriculture hosts Agriculture Day at the Capitol each Spring in partnership with California Women for Agriculture and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom.
This year’s theme was “Centennial Celebration: 100 Years of Agriculture Leadership” commemorating the 100th anniversary of the creation of CDFA by the California Legislature, as well as the centennials of many other agricultural organizations.
Ag Day is an annual celebration recognizing California’s agricultural community by showcasing the bounty of crops and commodities produced in our state. It is also a day for farmers and ranchers to show their appreciation by bringing together state legislators, government leaders and the public for agricultural education.
