What is Farm Bureau?
In the simplest of terms, Farm Bureau is a grassroots, non-governmental, voluntary membership organization. These Farm Bureau members help define the voice of agriculture. Our strength is measured by the folks who are our valuable members.
Structure of Farm Bureau
The American Farm Bureau Federation includes participation from each state. Then, there is a California Farm Bureau Federation which provides incredible resources and assistance to the 53 individual county Farm Bureaus in California.
It all starts at the county level! Folks, just like yourself, join as
a member of their county Farm Bureau and have the ability to
make changes at higher levels of the organizational structure.
Truly grassroots! The basic foundation is you -
but you have to join to make a difference!

What is Yuba-Sutter Farm Bureau’s Purpose?
The Yuba-Sutter Farm Bureau's mission is to represent Yuba and
Sutter counties’ agriculture through public relations, education,
and public policy advocacy in order to promote the economic
viability of agriculture balanced with appropriate management
of natural resources. To accomplish this mission, a dedicated
group of men and women volunteer their time and energy to
serve on the Board of Directors. These volunteers are your
neighbors and are all involved in the farming and ranching
industries. There is also paid staff that keeps the office going
with day to day management and long-range commitment
within the communities.
