National Hispanic Heritage Month — meet a young farmer

With National Hispanic Heritage Month underway (Sept 15 — Oct 15), CDFA wishes to acknowledge the extensive contributions of Hispanics in California.

According to the 2017 Census of Agriculture, California has a total of 14,597 Hispanic producers. CDFA recognizes that diversity in agriculture is a critical strength and is committed to working with underserved farmers, ranchers, and farmworkers in meeting the challenges ahead to help ensure a more equitable and prosperous future.
