Calaveras County

Calaveras County is located in the Northern part of the Central Valley, South East of Sacramento. It is named after the Calaveras River, which runs through it, as well as its mountainous terrain, with the Sierra Nevada mountain range on it's East side. The county is home to landmarks such as Moaning Cavern, a large underground cave system, and the Calaveras Big Trees State Park, which is home to groves of massive Sequoias.

In terms of history, Calaveras County was one of the original counties established in California when it became a state in 1850. It was originally a mining area, with gold being discovered in the county in 1848. The county's economy was largely based on mining, agriculture, and tourism for much of its history, and these industries continue to be an important part of the local economy today. In recent years, the county has also seen an increase in the number of wineries and breweries, as well as a growing tech industry. The county seat is San Andreas and the overall population is almost 50,000 people.

Cannabis cultivation is thriving in the county, with over three million square feet of cultivation, most of it outdoor. There are not many local retailers in the county, due to it's small population, so most of it's product is exported to Southern California or the Bay Area.
