In 1938, Los Angeles county opened a jail farm in the rolling foothills 40 miles north of the city of Los Angeles near the small town of Castaic. There was one barn, one shed, and two sets of barracks. Thus was the Wayside Honor Rancho born.

In a supplementary article to the California County Jails Expose, Pierre Salinger reports on his visit to an L.A. county "jail farm," where inmates work the land and care for the livestock.
