MENDOTA, Calif. (KFSN) -- Mendota's first cannabis farm is getting ready to host a job fair this weekend.

On Saturday, Boca Del Rio Farms and California Harvesters will host the event and are looking to bring more than 80 full-time and seasonal jobs to the farm.

Last month, officials broke ground on the highly anticipated farm in Mendota. It will not only bring jobs but critical revenue for the city and county.

Planting is expected to start in June.
