Who are we?

The Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee is a program for agriculturalists between the ages of 18 and 35 involved in production, banking, business, and many other areas of the industry. YF&R provides opportunities to develop leadership skills through involvement in Farm Bureau at the county, state, and national levels. YF&R members are a vital part of the organization. Each member’s efforts help California Farm Bureau to effectively represent the diversity of farmers and ranchers across the state.

How do I become involved?

Contact your local county Farm Bureau office to inquire about the status of the Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee and upcoming events. If a committee has not been appointed within your county and you are interested in getting one started, please indicate your interest to the county office.

For more information, contact the YF&R Program Coordinator at (800) 698-3276 or yfr@cfbf.com.
