What We Do
Monterey County Farm Bureau
Monterey County Farm Bureau supports the people that work the land. Our organization serves as a collective voice for farmers and ranchers and provides information, benefits and services to our members.
Farm Bureau cooperates with other agricultural organizations to fulfill its purpose of working for the solutions to the problems of the farm, the farm home and the rural community.
We fight for sensible land-use policies. We protect the county’s water supply and local water quality. We encourage regulators to adopt effective but fair, technically feasible rules and to evenly enforce those rules. We empower our members with information. We reach out to many different organizations and entities to seek solutions to often complex problems. We work to share agriculture with those who may only know their food from the grocery store. And we offer individual farmers and ranchers the opportunity to unite with others who share their concerns and interests, so they can speak with one powerful voice at the local, state and national levels.
Monterey County Farm Bureau will be recognized as one of four 2014 County of The Year award recipients at the California Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Meeting on December 8th. Activities of Excellence: Membership, Policy Implementation, Leadership, Ag Education, and Public Relations.
