About Us

Since the early days of the organization, Mendocino County Farm Bureau (MCFB) leaders and volunteers have participated in the organization doing for its members what no one person can do alone.

Efforts to form the organization started in 1917 in partnership with the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors and the University of California Cooperative Extension. The MCFB began its first official year in 1918 and then sent a local representative to help establish the statewide organization.

Today, MCFB remains strong and blessed with special people who give so generously of their time to keep fellow farmers and ranchers in the business of agriculture along with protecting the interests of rural area residents in Mendocino County. Farm Bureau members guide each step the organization takes through Farm Bureau’s policy development process. It is the local perspective that gives Farm Bureau the unified strength to represent the views of its members at both our state and national capitols.
