Corned beef and cabbage are synonymous with the holiday. California farmers say they're increasing their production to meet the up-to-75-percent increase in demand this time of year.

California leads the nation in cabbage production with about one-quarter of the total crop coming from the Golden State. Farmers do say this year's crop is smaller than usual, which could lead to higher prices at the grocery store.
