About Fresno County Farm Bureau

FCFB Office

Fresno County Farm Bureau (FCFB) is a non-profit membership organization founded in 1917 to promote and protect agriculture. As part of a nationwide Farm Bureau network of more than five million members, FCFB provides agricultural advocacy and outreach activities for some of the most productive and efficient farmers in the world.

Farm Bureau is part of a grassroots, nationwide network of Farm Bureaus organized on a county, state and national levels. The county Farm Bureau is the center of the organization. It is here that members join by payment of nominal annual dues which entitles them to the wide range of services and member benefits.

FCFB is one of 53 county Farm Bureaus currently representing a combined membership of over 4,000 family members in Fresno County. Collectively, Farm Bureau is California's largest farm organization with memberships from 76,500 farm families in 56 counties.

California Farm Bureau Federation (CFBF) serves the county Farm Bureaus' as our voice in state issues and works closely with representatives from American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) on issues of national importance.

Mission

Farm Bureau leads the agriculture industry and the community in addressing issues that result in long-term viability for agriculture and promoting the economic viability of the region.

Political Action

Farm Bureau represents its members at the local, state and federal levels of government, bringing interests to the forefront of discussions surrounding issues that affect the agriculture industry.

Community Outreach

Agriculture production is the largest economic contributor in Fresno County. FCFB strives to highlight the importance of the agriculture industry through devoted community leadership and media outreach.

Education

Farm Bureau takes a leading role in educating children and the public about agriculture. As the population continues to become further removed from the farm, FCFB helps bridge the gap between the consumer and the farmer.
