Selma, California is located in Fresno County along Freeway 99. The City of Selma dates back to 1880 when the Central Pacific Railroad built a branch line through the area. In 1896 the community had grown sufficiently enough to incorporate. Today the city has a population of 23,000 and prides itself in being a progressive growing community.
Farming has of course always been at the heart of Selma CA farms for sale. The productive sandy soils irrigated by snow-melt water delivered by canals via irrigation districts make Selma an ideal place to grow a variety of crops. The first settlers produced rich harvest of wheat, but that later gave way to peaches and then to raisins. Approximately 90% of the U.S. raisins are produces within an eight mile radius of Selma, CA, so it was natural for the city to adopt the slogan “Raisin Capital of the World” in 1963.
