Announcements

Welcome to the Solano County Farm Bureau Webpage

The Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership, non-profit organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors who represent the commodities grown in our county.   It has an ongoing, close working relationship with the U. C. Cooperative Extension and Agricultural Commissioner. 

 Farm Bureau serves as a political arm of the farmer speaking out on local, state and national issues that affect the agricultural commodities we raise. We also promote education of our members and the community on agricultural-related issues.

 The purpose of Farm Bureau is to surface, analyze, and solve the problems of farmers, ranchers, and loggers — representing the needs and interests of all Solano County farming families.
