Pinal County, formed in February 1875, comprises 5,376 square miles. Nestled between Maricopa County (Phoenix) and Pima County (Tucson), Pinal County is home to over 350,000 residents. The county has two distinct regions: the eastern mountainous area (copper mining and tourism) and the western lower valley desert area (manufacturing, distribution and agriculture).
Located in the very heart of the Sun Corridor, Pinal County has a very diverse economy. Since the county's inception 135 years ago, copper mining has and remains a county economic mainstay, over the many years creating thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenue to the state, county and local economies. Another major economic engine is agriculture. The central to western area of the county is home to hundreds of family, corporate and university based farms supporting various types of agricultural products including Pima cotton, hay, sorghum, millet, corn, sheep, dairy & feeder cattle and several varieties of fruits and vegetables.
