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 a historic, ongoing, close working relationship with the U. C. Cooperative Extension and Agricultural Commissioner. 

Farm Bureau advocates on behalf of the agricultural community, speaking out on local, state and national issues that affect the agricultural commodities we raise and provide. We also promote education of our members and the community on agricultural-related issues and support agri-tourism.

The Farm Bureau's mission is to 'Protect, encourage, and enhance economic opportunities and social viability for El Dorado County farmers, ranchers, and foresters', while representing the needs and interests of all El Dorado County farming families.

Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) Ruling Impacts

Handouts for Farm Bureau Members:

The first handout, “Will Your Property Be Affected by the Waters of the U.S. Rule,” was prepared by CFBF with the help of a consultant who is familiar with California-specific jurisdictional determinations under the Clean Water Act.  The two-page checklist handout provides some key questions for members to think about when determining if their property contains a water of the U.S.

The second handout, “Farming and Ranching Under the New Waters of the U.S. Rule,” was prepared by AFBF and illustrates types of farming and ranching activities that may trigger Clean Water Act liability.
