The climate and geography of the Santa Ynez Valley makes it a prime region for many agricultural operations. Horse and cattle ranches blanket the hills throughout the Valley, and there are also some very unique animals raised here, including miniature horses, longhorn cattle, llamas, emus, ostriches, and mules. The most common crops raised in the Santa Ynez Valley include beans, squash, alfalfa, oat hay, and cauliflower for seed, in addition to the nearly 10,000 acres of the Valley covered in lush vineyards. Over 30 wineries are located within a 15-mile radius of Buellton.
