Gearing Up For Spring
Preparations are underway at Mike Daddow’s rice farm as they make sure all the equipment is ready for this season’s work when the fields are dry.
Mike Daddow Farming in Sutter and Yolo Counties, Mike is the fourth generation of his family to grow rice in California. His great grandfather served as an engineer in Natomas and is credited with helping lay out the irrigation system for the region. Mike graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with two Bachelor of Science Degrees. He and his wife Susan have three boys – Max, Sam and Alex – who all help out on the farm when they can. When he isn’t growing rice, Mike puts his pilot’s license to good use.
