Loam Ridges is located in the heart of Glen County, California. Orland is a rural agricultural town located in Glenn County near the dry western foothills of the Northern Sacramento Valley. The history of Orland dates back to the 1840s when Granville Perry Swift built an adobe north of the future town of Orland as the headquarters of his cattle ranch that covered the most of the western valley floor from Stoney Creek to Cashe Creek. The town was named Orland in 1875 after a lottery to decide the name. The following year, the first post office was established in Orland.
