We promote careful, efficient and ethical use of land, water and other resources. We foster deliberations and make decisions that represent the range of members' views and interests through open-minded, optimistic, transparent, pragmatic and progressive thinking—and action.
We believe agriculture is best served if positions and strategies on issues of potential public concern are developed ahead of time rather than on a reactionary basis. We seek an organizational posture that is proactive and positive rather than defensive in nature.
We believe that a strong, mutual respect and understanding between farmers and the broader community is in the best interest of Ventura County agriculture.
Through our affiliation with California Farm Bureau Federation and American Farm Bureau Federation, the interests of VCFB and its members are expressed to policy makers in Sacramento and Washington.
