Explore El Dorado County’s
Agriculture, Artisanal Producers
and Family Farms

El Dorado County has a long tradition of agriculture dating to the gold rush of the 1800’s and today we continue to be proud of our rural atmosphere and agricultural history. The association was established as a non-profit organization in 1992 to promote agriculture and agri-tourism in the county. Today, we dedicate our efforts toward carrying out our mission.

Our members grow a wide variety of fruits, including cherries, berries, peaches, apples, pears, and oranges as well as wine grapes, flowers, Christmas trees and other agricultural products. Our members who operate wineries offer many award winning wines having flavor characteristics unique to the foothill appellations of El Dorado County.

Whether you are touring our scenic areas for a day or a week, please explore EDC Farm Trails and take home some of the excellent fruits, vegetables, and other products available. The many agricultural attractions and recreational activities available in our beautiful county also offer something for everyone, especially families.
