Roscoe Zuckerman is the third generation farming this land. His grandfather (also named Roscoe) came to the area in the 1920s and fell in love with the Delta Region, finding it to be a unique microcosm of the central valley. The Zuckermans' farm is located on an 'island' in the delta formed by the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers flowing toward the bay. The water is held at bay by levees that surround the farmland. The Zuckermans once had upwards of 15,000 acres in the area, and have survived many floods. The last big flood was in 1982 (August 22) when the island flooded.
