Welcome to the
Lake County Farm Bureau
Lake County Farm Bureau (LCFB) is a non-profit organization of farmers and ranchers that represent over 500 farm families and companies that reside in Lake County, California. The Lake County Farm Bureau promotes agriculture in Lake County and advocates on issues relating to farming, ranching and rural California. LCFB is part of the California Farm Bureau Federation, which is California's largest agricultural advocacy organization.
Our organization works not only with Farm Bureau members, but also with elected officials, media, government agencies, educators, and the public to analyze and solve issues (both social & economical) facing the agriculture industry.

The USDA Tree Assistance Program (TAP) is currently available to impacted Lake County walnut growers and includes partial reimbursement for orchard replacement, replanting or rehabilitation.

We Would Like to Thank the Following Sponsors for our 96th Annual Meeting
Every year Lake County Farm Bureau hosts an Annual Member Meeting and Love of the Land Dinner in order to fund raise for our scholarship efforts and other farm focused programs that occur during the year. Friends of Farm Bureau are those businesses and individuals that express their commitment to our goals of supporting local farmers through educational programs, training classes, industry workshops, political activism, and community involvement.
As a non-profit organization, Lake County Farm Bureau relies on the generous support of those businesses in order to ensure that our Farm Bureau stays strong. These donations make all our efforts throughout the year possible.
