The freeze that hit wine grape growers hard last year, resulted in a drop in Santa Barbara County agriculture sales.
The county's just-released 2011 crop report shows farmers and ranchers grossed nearly $1.2 billion in sales last year, an overall drop of 2.1 percent, or about $26 million, from the previous year.
The Santa Barbara News-Press says an April freeze dropped wine crop values from $97 million in 2010 to $77 million last year.
Still, wine grapes were the county's No. 3 crop.
Strawberries were the county's top moneymaker with nearly $367 million in sales.
Broccoli was in second place at $127 million.
Head lettuce was fourth and avocados were fifth.
