March is the start of spring planting in many parts of California and when California Ag Day is held at the state Capitol -- March 22, 2017.

Ag Day at the Capitol is a way for those who attend to see and learn firsthand about California's rich agricultural bounty and to meet some of the people who work to keep California's agriculture productive, diverse and high quality.

At Ag Day there are booths that offer visitors close encounters with alpacas,  a chance to sample California's tasty agricultural commodities, inspect interesting insects and meet a rodeo queen.

At Ag Day everyone can learn where the California food, fiber and flowers we enjoy are produced!
