Sutter County is situated in the heart of Northern California, about an hour’s drive north of Sacramento and midway between the Sierra Nevada mountain range and the Pacific Coast.
Local geography offers fertile valley land where a thriving agricultural community produces an abundance of fruit, grain and beans. The scenic Sutter Buttes, known as "the world’s smallest mountain range", rise above the valley floor. Both the Sacramento and Feather Rivers traverse the county, providing a wealth of recreational activities, including sport fishing.
Yuba City serves as the county seat and offers a high quality of life to its residents who enjoy living in a more pastoral, rural setting as opposed to living amidst the hustle and bustle of a major metropolitan area. Well known as a nice place to raise a family, residents have also been attracted by Sutter County’s very affordable housing and the region’s moderate climate.
