Drought Resources for Marin County Agriculture

Stefan P. Parnay, Agriculture, Weights and Measures - Marin County

Marin County and many other parts of California and western states are experiencing extremely serious drought conditions which are projected to significantly worsen throughout 2021. The Marin County Department of Agriculture and many of its partners are coordinating drought relief efforts to help ensure ranchers have the support they need to remain viable. Our dairy industry is especially being hard hit and there are grave concerns that many of these operations may be forced to close. Marin County dairies and other agricultural producers provide a wide variety of staple commodities, value-added products, and ecosystem services to our region. We have a responsibility to help ensure they receive the support needed to continue operating and providing local, fresh agricultural products to our communities. Below is a list of partners and resources that support drought relief efforts:
