Live Oak, California - CDFA Undersecretary Jim Houston this week at the Lomo Station peach orchard in Live Oak, in Sutter County. California is the largest peach producing state in the country, and Sutter County alone, with production of more than 184,000 tons at a value of nearly $70 million, out-produces the second and third ranking states, South Carolina and Georgia.

So the time has come to start talking about “the Sutter Peach.”
