TOP NEWS: Check out our new post about current operating status


We are a publicly-held natural resources company that owns 70 square miles of property and water resources in Southern California.  Since the 1980s we have operated an agricultural development in the Cadiz Valley of eastern San Bernardino County, California and are presently focused on partnering with public water agencies to implement the Cadiz Water Project, which will create a new water supply for approximately 100,000 Southern California families and make available up to 1 million acre-feet of new groundwater storage capacity.  Guided by a holistic land management strategy, we are dedicated to pursuing sustainable resource development projects and practicing responsible stewardship of our unique land and water assets.


Cadiz has been a part of the eastern Mojave Desert community for over 30 years and is committed to protecting the desert environment.


In 2015, we established the Fenner Valley Desert Tortoise Conservation Bank, a land conservation bank that makes available approximately 7,500 acres of our properties for permanent protection of habitat for the desert tortoise, a State of California and federally-listed threatened species.



At our Cadiz Valley property, a total of 9,600 acres have been zoned for agricultural development. Presently 2,100 acres are leased by third parties for farming.


Permanent crops currently in production include grape vineyards grown to certified-organic dried-on-the-vine raisins and lemon orchards.

Cadiz Water Project

The Cadiz Water Project is an innovative public-private partnership among Southern California water agencies and desert agriculture business Cadiz Inc. that will create a new water supply that can serve up to 400,000 people a year by reducing a recurrent loss of groundwater to evaporation in California’s Mojave Desert.
