California Bountiful Television

California Bountiful TV is a 30-minute weekly tour of the state's dynamic food industry. It features stories on the people, places and lifestyles that have made California the nation's largest food-producing state.  California Farm Bureau produces the bimonthly magazine and weekly TV program for audiences that may not be familiar with farming, ranching and food production.

The show airs on KSBW / 8 on Fridays at 12:30 PM.  Watch video clips here.
