How to Join
Everyone is eligible to apply for Farm Bureau membership and receive the many benefits and services available. When you join, you are applying for membership in the county Farm Bureau where you live or work.
Farmers and ranchers who receive income from production agriculture join as agricultural members and receive the weekly Ag Alert®, California's number one agricultural trade journal.
All others join as associate members and receive the bimonthly California Bountiful, filled with useful information and background on food production, home gardening and other subjects. Each county has different dues rates for both agricultural associate members.
