California Sikh Community. Parade in Stockton, California, May 11, 1945.

When the first Sikh immigrants arrived in California’s fertile Central Valley more than a century ago, they found farming conditions similar to those in Punjab. The Sikh community now accounts for 95% of peach farming, 60% of prune farming and 20% of almond and walnut farming in Sutter County.
