Nipomo is one of the richest agricultural areas in central California. Its deep blanket of alluvial soil, washed down from the Nipomo foothills, supports lemon groves and avocado orchards, vegetable farms and commercial nurseries. If you're looking for land for agricultural purposes, or even a small family farm, you can't do much better than Nipomo.

The community is small and unincorporated, with about 12,000 residents. The geography varies from mesa lands and a spectacular lake to rolling sand dunes. There is an 18,000 acre, 18-mile shoreline that has been designated a national natural landmark. Home to more than 50 species of birds, it's a birder's paradise. There are wineries to visit, golf courses to take on, and a surprisingly lively art scene.

Nipomo Is a Growing Community

The population of Nipomo has doubled since 2000, and that's a harbinger of things to come. With such a bounty of natural beauty and rich, easily arable soil located halfway between California's two major cities, this area is a magnet. Many of the new residents are young families, making Nipomo's population one of the youngest in San Luis Obispo County. This is an area with feet planted deeply in the past and eyes fixed firmly on the future.

If you are interested in investing in Nipomo land, whether for agricultural, residential or recreational purposes, contact a central California realtor. He or she can help you find exactly the parcel you are looking for. And with prices still reasonable, now is the time to get an excellent deal.
