Join Farm Bureau
Agriculture is the economic driver of Monterey County and your membership supports our heritage as land stewards of one of the most productive areas of the world. Indeed, we feed the world!
We’re There for You, protecting your water rights! With issues of water use, possible diversions for municipal use, desalination, groundwater sustainability, and drought management, we engage for you in numerous forums and meetings where others think they know better how Ag water should be used. We are engaging in the Peninsula Water Supply Project proposal that will place well intake facilities directly above the Salinas River Groundwater Basin, formation of the groundwater sustainability agency, and continued discussions on what should be done to combat salt water intrusion by utilizing surface water Permit #11043 and the inter-lake tunnel connection.
We’re There for You, watching Monterey County ordinance development triggered by the General Plan update … after our successful legal challenge to policies that threatened the long-term water supply promised by the Salinas Valley Water Project. The revision to the well ordinance is pending, and proof of access ordinance, alternative energy ordinance, and right to farm ordinance have been revised with Farm Bureau at the table offering input and guidance.
There are many reasons to join Farm Bureau membership, beyond what is listed above, as there are many other benefits of membership that add value to your investment in the local Agricultural community. You can earn back your investment through use of your GM vehicle discount, Grainger supplies discount, and other discount programs offered only to Farm Bureau members.
