Farm Bureau of Ventura County

For more than a century, we've been supporting local farmers and ranchers through education and advocacy.

No industry has a more profound impact on Ventura County's landscape and quality of life than agriculture. Farmers and ranchers are stewards of more than half of the privately owned land in the county; their fields, orchards and rangeland are a precious local heritage. Farm Bureau has been helping preserve this heritage since 1914.

We do much more, however, than provide farmers and ranchers the tools and support they need to thrive. We also serve as a resource for legislators, educators, community leaders and everyone who cares about local food and farming. Whether you're interested in land-use policy, the types of crops grown here, or the best place to pick your own produce, see how Farm Bureau of Ventura County can help you.
