Orange Cove is a comfortable agricultural community located along the eastern foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Located within 4 hours drive of the San Francisco Bay and Los Angeles basin areas, the City lies 35 miles south east of Fresno and a 30 minute drive east of Freeway 99 in central California.
The City enjoys a year around growing season for hundreds of acres of orange and lemon citrus fruit, with major packing house operations, surrounding the community. Orange Cove is a destination site for the annual spring Fresno County Blossom Trail event that kicks off the agricultural growing season. It is located within an hour’s drive of the Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park areas for fishing, hiking and family recreational activity.
In late 2009, the City welcomed establishment of the Orange Cove Police Department. The new Orange Cove City Council has established public safety, economic development and infrastructure development as local community priorities.
