Leading the way in food and agricultural responsibility

Woodland has shaped the future of food and agriculture for over a century. Today, our diverse and growing food and agriculture economy is thriving with partners engaged from all facets of the food system from family owned farms and food processors to world-leading seed research and agrifood tech companies.

Our food and agriculture industry, celebrated through The Food Front initiative, drives economic activity through its fertile farmland, seed research and technology, food producers and processors, farm-to-fork restaurants and proximity to world-leading research at UC Davis.

The construction of a new Innovation Hub specializing in emerging agricultural technologies and related research in energy, transportation, environmental and health sciences is underway in the City of Woodland.

The 351-acre Woodland Research & Technology Park will provide over 2 million square feet of office, research, light industrial/manufacturing and incubator/flex space in a dynamic “work-live-play” environment. Companies located in the Tech Park will have the advantage of:

  • immediate proximity to prime farmland for research and field trials,
  • talent and research of UC Davis, just 7 miles away, and
  • diverse mobility and transport options including the Sacramento International Airport (11 miles east), major freeways, rail and deep sea ports within the County.

The Tech Park, anticipated to break ground in 2022, is a natural progression of the City’s long history of innovation and creativity in health, food, and agricultural productivity.

It’s not everyday you find a place that feels like home. #WeAreWoodland
