Land Use Policies
The Tulare County Farm Bureau Board of Directors (TCFB) have adopted the following Land Use Policies to protect the rural lifestyle of Tulare County, provide open space with a working landscape, and encourage the continued production of high quality, low cost food in the most efficient, responsible and profitable manner possible.
The demand and need for food will increase with the anticipated worldwide growth in population. Therefore, land use decisions must recognize that agricultural lands comprise an important strategic national resource as well as providing national security.
Farm Bureau maintains local policies on those issues that are critical to protecting farmland in Tulare County and will testify at hearings and attend important conversations to speak on behalf of agriculture.
