As a link between the U.C. Extension system, the Farm Bureau fostered a relationship between members of our agricultural community and farm advisors. By working together, the U.C. Extension’s farm advisors could conduct field trials in different parts of California. This meant the Farm Bureau could share valuable research findings with our farmers.
Over the years, the Farm Bureau developed an organizational structure and tradition to best help farmers like you. Members are grouped into Farm Centers based on location to provide even more specific support and representation of the local communities within San Joaquin County. Our Farm Advisors still give a report at every SJFB meeting today about the state of our county’s farming!
From our humble roots, we’ve worked tirelessly to raise awareness and advocate for farmers on issues like water, land use, and other issues that uniquely affect farmers. This includes things like providing insurance, compliance trainings, partnerships, consumer education, and so much more—all at a discounted rate for Farm Bureau members.
When you join, you’re not only joining other farmers, you’re joining a group of likeminded people who care about the issues that affect our community and want to see something done about it.
A lot has changed since 1914, but we still believe that agriculture works best when we work together. We encourage anyone who cares about our county’s farming to take part and become a member today! From farmers, packers, and those who just care about sustainable farming, we work best when we stand together.
For over one hundred years, we’ve led and operated with this mindset. As a part of the San Joaquin County agricultural community, we work hard to represent you.
The San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation is a 501(c)(5) non-profit organization.
