Summary  If one were to drive on the Jackson Road toward Sloughhouse in the early 21st century, one would see the drying kilns, all that remains of a once thriving hops industry. At one time California was one of the only States that produced hops. In 1915 production exceeded 75,000 bales. Hops were grown on the river bottom lands of the Sacramento River and its tributaries. They were grown on trellises and September was the month for picking. An acre of land produced about a ton of cured hops. Sacramento County in the heart of California.
