History
In 1946, a small group of local agriculturalist incorporated the Sacramento County Farm Bureau.  The mission was to solve problems relating to the farm, farm home, and rural community.  They recognized the advantages of organized action to help enhance their visibility as an industry among an ever-changing world and economy.

Present
4000 acres of vital farmland is lost each year to urbanization.  There is a great concern among producers that not only the practice of farming and ranching is decreasing, but that their rural way of life is being threatened.  Area growers work hard to supply consumers with high quality products while battling such obstacles as increased production costs and water availability.

Vision
As the earth’s original conservationists, producers have a keen interest in preserving our precious land for future generations.  Farmers are concerned with natural resources, animal health, water, and air quality.  Agriculture professionals are continuing to fund research in an effort to increase farm production and improve animal health.
