Is there any property in LA which has farms or barns? If not, what are the nearest cities to LA which do have farms or barns?
How about Whittier? Any cow grazing properties there?

See Ventura County. You don't see many cows grazing anymore though, but when I was a kid I'd always get chased by them when I was playing in the mountains.

Surprisingly, there are a number of open land regions within the city in the foothills and areas owned by the Santa Monica Mt. Conservancy. But as another poster mentioned, you have to go up into Ventura county to find farms and ranches [mostly citrus and avocado groves].

Shadow Hills is zoned for horses. There are trails and open spaces in the surrounding area- Verdugos and areas around the Hansen Dam.

Lots of open space here in Ventura County. Plenty of ranches also. In the hills above Ventura, over in the heritage Valley near Santa Paula and Fillmore. Between Santa Paula and Ojai. Between Fillmore and Moorpark. Lots of beautifull land to see, ranches, orchards, ect.

You'll see a little bit in Rolling Hills, but mostly upscale horse properties. Head out to Riverside County and you'll find plenty of ranches(though you have to head farther out than before with all the recent housing)

How are those areas (Ventura County/Santa Maria/Ojai) price-wise and what's the average size of the parcels? I keep seeing 2.5 acres all over the Antelope Valley/Techachapi area...

There are still some barns in the San Fernando Valley, near Reseda or Northridge? I can't remember the streets I've seen them on -- but it might be Roscoe? Or Parthenia? Or Nordhoff?

There's an area outside of LA city in LA County called Leona Valley, which is west of Palmdale. They have cherry orchards and you'll probably still see some barns up there. Very nice country.
