Farm Bureau membership isn’t just for farmers and ranchers — although every farmer and rancher should be a member of their local Farm Bureau. Membership in Farm Bureau gives California farmers and ranchers a powerful voice in their county, in Sacramento and in Washington, D. C. — more important today than ever.
Aside from working hard for our members (legislation, lobbyists, policy implementation), Farm Bureau provides great membership services, benefits, and discounts to all our members.
Everyone is eligible to apply for Farm Bureau membership and receive the many benefits and services available. When you join, you are applying for membership in the Madera County Farm Bureau. All members receive the Madera County Farm Bureau Newspaper produced exclusively for Madera County Farm Bureau members.
Farmers and ranchers who receive income from production agriculture join us as a “Agricultural Member” and receive the weekly Ag Alert, California’s number one agricultural trade journal.
All others can join and lend their support to the work that Farm Bureau does by becoming a “Associate Member” also know as a sustaining member of the Farm Bureau. For just $72 per year you will not only know that you are enhancing the voice of farmers in your community, you will also receive a subscription to California Country magazine and have access to a wide variety of member benefits that are exclusive to Farm Bureau members.
The “Collegiate” membership category is now available for students between the ages of 16 and 25 enrolled in a post-high school education program such as a community college, four-year university or trade school. For just $25 per year Collegiate Farm Bureau members receive access to an online version of Ag Alert®, the award-winning weekly newspaper covering California agriculture. Additionally, collegiate members will have access to scholarship information, internship opportunities and agricultural career information. Membership also includes a discount to register and attend the CFBF Annual Meeting and the annual Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership Conference, and collegiate members may compete in the statewide Collegiate Discussion Meet sponsored by the Farm Bureau YF&R program.
Businesses (agriculturally related and non-agriculturally related) may join as Business Support Members. “Business Support Members” information is listed in the Business Members section of our website, encouraging visitors to our website to do business with you!
