Yolo County, California free pdf Excerpt from Yolo County, California Yolo County, California, possessing wondrous wealth in the fertility of its soil, glorious climate and advantageous location, extends an invitation to all persons weary of drudgery and dreary days- who are tired of the struggle with storms and snow- who are cruelly cooped up in cities- who seek success- who, having dreamed of a home, want more than visionary happiness- who are patriotic and progressive- who love peace and desire plenty and prosperity. To such as these Yolo County holds forth a promise that may be fulfilled in rich rewards. Yolo County is not being boomed. There is no inflated bubble to burst. The certain and steady growth of the county in recent years is due solely to its marvelous attractiveness, and the only reason that it is not more populous is because large tracts of land had been held for half a century in comparatively few ownerships. Surely soil could not be more productive than indicated by the following excerpt taken from a report issued by the United States Department of Agriculture: "It is ideal grain, alfalfa and fruit land. You may find growing on this soil wheat, corn, barley, oats, alfalfa, all the vegetables of a temperate and subtropical climate, apples, apricots, nectarines, plums, pears, prunes, oranges, lemons, limes, figs, pomegranates, grapes (table, wine and raisin), almonds, olives, English walnuts, berries of all kinds and melons." And since climate is an essential asset - in fact, the working capital of the farmer - it is well to cite at the outset the same government authority, as follows: "The climatic conditions in general are favorable to the production of grain and other crops, the early ripening and coloring of fruits and the open-air curing of dried fruits. The dry air of the summer and late spring makes the region comparatively free from certain insect and fungus troubles affecting the fruit and trees in regions of great humidity." So in the very beginning Yolo County has its story half told by an indisputable authority, but it is the purpose of this booklet to give publicity to vital details, to accentuate the natural advantages of the county, and to impress upon the interested reader that here there are manifold opportunities that one cannot afford to overlook. Above all else the absolute truth is told from the opening sentence to the closing period. Indeed, it is unnecessary to draw any fanciful picture of the resources of Yolo, for the productivity of its soil is so marvelous that facts, honestly related, sometimes seem like the vaporings of an enthusiast. Yolo County is anxious to reach the homeseeker, the man who wants to settle upon a twenty or forty-acre tract of land and enjoy the fruits of his labor. There is need for such persons in this county, and when it is understood that ninety persons or corporations own sixty-five percent, of all the lands in Yolo County and that the average farm acreage is 365 acres, one can realize readily that there is ample room for thousands of families. In addition to its matchless soil and ideal climate Yolo County has all the conveniences of modern civilization - railroads, water transportation, electric light and power, excellent educational facilities, including the State University Agricultural College, telephone, telegraph, complete system of highways, rural mail delivery system, free public library and everything required for comfort and convenience by a progressive people.
