Farm Bureau is a grass-roots and non-profit organization of farmers for farmers, and is the single largest
advocacy organization representing farmers in the state. Farm Bureau volunteers and staff do the work
that farmers don’t have time to do – researching issues and showing up to speak to committees,
regulatory agencies, legislators, and community forums.
In 1917, farmers in Orange County joined the wave of other California counties establishing Farm Bureau
offices recognizing the strength in speaking with a collective voice. For as long as there have been
farmers in Orange County there have been familiar challenges: water, labor, pests and disease. Other
challenges have come up more recently: land use conflicts, urban encroachment, runoff monitoring, all
while the regulatory environment has grown more restrictive.
By speaking together as one organization, farmers and those who value local agriculture can be certain
they are heard and their views represented in the collective conversation and in the halls of power.
