T he Salinas valley is world renowned for its many agricultural produce. Artichokes, lettuce, strawberries and wine grapes are among the crops that are grown in the Salinas Valley, Castroville, Las Lomas and in Mosslanding. Large tracts of grazing lands border the farm lands.

In the early days of farming in The Salinas
Valley farm workers piled lettuce on tractor beds then trucked to nearby packing sheds.

Once processed the produce was packed in ice and shipped by trucks or trains.

Today lettuce and other produce are picked efficiently by doing most of the processing in the fields and placing the produce directly into shipping boxes, then shipped in refrigerated trucks.
