King County has historically been a productive agricultural region with dairies, livestock operations, crop farms and berry fields. Rich agricultural areas once supported hundreds of families and provided an abundant local food source for thousands. Increased land prices, regulations, urban pressures, and drainage problems have all significantly contributed to the reduction of farmland in King County; however, farming is still a vital presence.
