Located in the state of California and a city in Stanislaus County, Turlock sits on the San Joaquin Valley and is situated at the southeast of Stockton. The area was founded in 1871 by a grain farmer. Upon the completion of the Central Pacific Railroad and was extended through the valley, Turlock became the shipping point for the wheat crop. The Turlock irrigation district then transformed the dry farming in the valley into well-diversified farming that includes fruit growing, dairying, and poultry raising. The city’s food-processing industry has been supplemented by warehousing and light manufacturing.
