Butte County CA


Butte County is located 60 miles north of Sacramento in California's agricultural heartland. Often called the “Land of Natural Wealth and Beauty” Butte County was one of the original California counties, founded on February 18, 1850. It is the home to about 217,300 people, living in the cities of Chico, Oroville, Gridley, Biggs, Paradise or other parts of the county.

Bordered by the Sierra Nevada Mountains on the east and the Sacramento River on the west, Butte County is just a short drive from the major metropolitan areas of Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay area. Butte County's rural setting offers abundant opportunities to expanding and relocating businesses. With a supply of zoned land and available buildings, Butte County can accommodate any business. Relocating companies have found Butte County locations for a fraction of the cost for similar properties in the Bay Area.

Butte County offers all the advantages of the heartland combined with metropolitan amenities-low crime rates, short commutes, affordable housing, abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, strong work ethics, and a sense of community. Butte County has a highly acclaimed university, Chico State University, as well as fine arts and cultural programs, and state-of-the-art medical services. The county seat is located in Oroville.
