Kern County Farm Bureau
The Kern County Farm Bureau (KCFB) was organized in 1914 and is affiliated with the California and American Farm Bureau Federations through a uniform membership agreement. Our purpose is to surface, analyze and solve the problems of farmers and ranchers. By joining together, farmers and ranchers are able to accomplish much more than acting as individuals. Farm Bureau's roots can be traced back to the Cooperative Extension System and today, Farm Bureau and the Cooperative Extension have a close working relationship.

The Kern County Farm Bureau is divided into three geographic districts and each district is represented by a maximum of eleven directors on the Board of Directors.  The Board meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the KCFB office in Bakersfield, unless otherwise noticed.  Members are always welcome to attend, but it is suggested you contact the office in advance for more information about each month's agenda.  The Annual Meeting for all members is held in October, at which time Officers and Board Members are ratified by those in attendance who maintain an “agricultural" membership.
