For over two decades, the City of Turlock has worked hard to earn the recognition of being a Tree City USA member by creating a Community Forest Program and holding an annual Arbor Day event with local school children. The current drought, however, is making city staff work even harder to maintain the thousands of trees that not only beautify Turlock but also improve air quality.
Two Turlock Foster Farms facilities were among nine facilities nationwide to receive an Award of Distinction-the highest level of achievement for employee safety-from the Joint Industry Safety and Health Council during the 2015 National Safety Conference for the Poultry Industry.
For the past two years, winter holiday time in Turlock has been a little more fun as thousands of families have been able to enjoy ice skating at Fields of Ice, a seasonal rink operated by R.A.M Farms on Daubenberger Road, just south of Canal Drive.
