And where did the cows go, one may ask? Some dairy farms can still be seen in San Jacinto. We accidentally ran into one dairy farm, while searching for a local monument, Cottonwood Dairy.
Owners and workers of Cottonwood said the developments around the dairy took the space used to raise cattle in the past.
As houses spring, so suddenly, one might guess where investors want to put their money. And while the partners of the dairy vowed never to sell, it is not far fetched to assume that the last of California cows is what we saw in San Jacinto, in the spring of 2014.
