Ecosystem Services Database
Ecosystem Services in agriculture is defined as
"the multiple benefits we gain
from farming and ranching including crop and livestock production."
The information contained in this database is collected from farm and ranch websites and on-line case studies and is updated annually.
The database is designed to show and communicate, to a wide audience, the many social and environmental benefits offered
by growers and ranches in California, including food production.
The database can be searched by key word and categories as well as through the interactive map below.
This database of nearly 400 farms and ranches is comprised predominately of farms growing specialty crops.
There are approximately 300 specialty crop farms and 100 non-specialty crop growers.
