The California Farm Bureau Federation is a non-governmental, non-profit, voluntary membership California corporation whose purpose is to protect and promote agricultural interests throughout the state of California and to find solutions to the problems of the farm, the farm home and the rural community. Farm Bureau is California’s largest farm organization, comprised of 53 county Farm Bureaus currently representing approximately 76,500 farm families and individual members in 56 counties.
Farm Bureau strives to protect and improve the ability of farmers and ranchers engaged in production agriculture to provide a reliable supply of food and fiber through responsible stewardship of California’s resources.
Farm Bureau is organized on a county, state and national basis-in that order. The policies and programs of Farm Bureau are developed from grassroots recommendations originating at the county Farm Bureau level. From these recommendations, policy positions are prepared and submitted to the CFBF House of Delegates for action. Resolutions approved by the House of Delegates on state matters become CFBF policy while national matters are forwarded to the American Farm Bureau Federation for consideration.
The CFBF Board of Directors determines a program of activities based on action of the House of Delegates. Elements of the CFBF and county Farm Bureau programs can include government affairs work, legal review and involvement, membership outreach, public education and leadership development.
