Good eats or farms along the I-99 (LA to Sac)?
In Bakersfield...Woolgrower's is good, I give a slight edge to Benji's, though, for Basque food. Los Tacos De Huicho for unbelievably good Mexican food, Sunday Brunch at the Crystal Palace will fill you up for the entire day, Dewar's for Ice Cream, and...if you have the time or inclination...a margarita at Mexicali.
Superior Dairy in Hanford...about 20 miles west of Visalia...is also worth a stop for ice cream.

Sal's Mexican Restaurant at 2163 Park St in Selma - this is an institution, and is in the middle of your trip to Sac (a little over three hours to go). While n/b on 99, exit on 2nd Street, turn left, this becomes Nebraska and you make your first left turn onto Thompson, a couple of more blocks then left on Park Street. If you get lost, everyone knows where this restaurant is. I am partial to their Chile Verde plate. If the weather is cold, get some of the Cocido. Be prepared to be a little drowsy after, good Mexican food does that to me.
Swedish pancakes in Kingsburg at the PalahorseCafe on their main drag if you get there before 11am. Swedish plate lunch there too and some Swedish food products. This is a charming little stop with the huge Swedish coffee pot for the water tower you see from the highway.
