Welcome to the Farm Bureau!

 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 El Dorado County farming families.

Zoning Ordinance revision
The El Dorado County zoning ordinance is currently undergoing environmental review.  We will let you know when the next draft is available for comment.  In the meantime, to get informed on the proposed ordinance, go to the county’s website.  
Opt-in

If you are a commercial agricultural operation or if you plan to be one in the future, you may request the county to keep your land zoned for agricultural use.  For those who are engaged in commercial agriculture, being zoned properly will ensure that you are protected from impacts associated with increasing development.  The Board of Supervisors will consider your request for agricultural zoning when they analyze the impacts of the proposed Zoning Ordinance.  To “opt-in” is to say “Yes, I want to be zoned for agriculture both now and in the future”!
