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.
Everyone is eligible to join. Whether you're a farmer, rancher, business owner or simply a resident who appreciates Ventura County's delicious, locally grown food, there is a Farm Bureau membership that fits your interests and budget.
The Farm Bureau of Ventura County publishes or distributes a number of periodical publications specifically geared to agriculture. These include the organization’s monthly newsletter, the quarterly Central Coast Farm & Ranch magazine, the weekly Ag Alert newspaper published by California Farm Bureau Federation, and California Country—a bimonthly magazine also published by CFBF.
Farm Bureau is the voice of Ventura County agriculture in local planning and policy discussions. We promote careful, efficient and ethical use of land, water and other resources.
The Farm Bureau strives to be the No. 1 source of accurate, reliable information about Ventura County agriculture. If you’re researching a story, gathering information for a report, or seeking answers to common questions about the county’s most visible industry, we hope you’ll turn to us first.
