About Yolo County

How to Beat a Yolo County Traffic Ticket

The name Yolo is reportedly derived from the Patwin Indian word “Yoloy” which translates to the “abounding in the rushes.” The California Gold rush brought a large population increase into the county, but the settlers quickly realized that a greater fortune was to be made through farming and ranching in the area. Yolo County became one of the original counties when California became a state in 1850.

Yolo County’s 1,021 square miles are located in California’s Central Valley and the Sacramento River Delta. Nearly 87% of the county’s population of 218,900 residents reside in four incorporated cities; Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento, and Winters. Much of Yolo remains a relatively rural agricultural region, and Yolo County remains home to the multibillion-dollar California tomato industry that accounts for 90% of the canned and processed tomato production in the U.S.

University of California, Davis also resides within Yolo County bringing over 30,000 undergraduate students to its 5,300-acre campus each fall. U.C. Davis is also the largest employer in the area with just under 10,000 employees.
