What is Farm Bureau?
Farm Bureau is a voluntary and independent non-governmental, non-profit organization of agricultural producers united for the purpose of achieving educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement. Farm Bureau helps give farmers and ranchers a united voice to promote and protect their common interests without regard to political or religious affiliation. Farm Bureau is local, statewide, national and international in scope and influence.
Tulare County Farm Bureau is comprised of agricultural members (those who receive income from farming or ranching), associate members (those who do not receive income from production agriculture and are non-voting). Business and Heritage Members may belong as Agricultural or Associate.
The Tulare County Farm Bureau is governed by a 23-member Board of Directors consisting of the Executive Committee, 15 District Directors, the California Farm Bureau Federation District 6 Director, Immediate Past President, Chairperson of the Livestockyards Committee and the Tulare County Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee Chairperson. A District Director resides or operates a farm or ranch in the county district in which they are elected to represent. These districts correspond to Tulare County supervisorial districts and help Farm Bureau remain a member-controlled, grassroots policy driven organization.
