Kings County Ordinance NO. 662 was adopted in June this year to establish criteria for the prevention of walnut theft.
This year’s featured crop is the increasingly popular pistachio. Classified as a small tree, it is native to the Middle East region. Kings County is one of the top five pistachio-producing counties in California. In 2012, the county has 16,159 acres in production with another 4,000 non-bearing acres. Improved rootstock and cultural practices developed over the last 30 years, as well as the increase in acreage, have lead to record production in Kings County as well. Learn More . . .
