Welcome to the Humboldt Farm Bureau
The Humboldt Farm Bureau is Humboldt County's largest general agricultural organization, representing dairy, timber, cattle, produce, oysters, wineries, and the floral industry. We are a grass roots organization dedicated to promoting and preserving agriculture in Humboldt County. As a member of the California Farm Bureau Federation our members are provided with a network of support both on and off the farm. From delivering breaking legislative and local news to educational tools and helpful discounts.
Where are we?
Humboldt County is a picturesque rural community with a deep water seaport about 200 miles north of San Francisco and 100 miles south of the Oregon border. Its pleasant climate, rolling fields, and abundant waterways make it the perfect place for a wide variety of industries, including forestry, dairy, floral, and aquaculture.
Over the past year, I have been able to travel from Moses Lake, Washington, to the high desert of Oregon and through the central valley of California. It always amazes me to see how big and diverse agriculture can be. This past week, I traveled to Coalinga, CA for a California Beef Council meeting with my wife, Sarah. It was stunning to see just how dry California really is. To see vineyards being pulled out of the ground, dying orchards, and unirrigated fields was mind-blowing. In Humboldt, we may be in a drought too, but we have no idea how lucky we are. That being said, the water policies that have been forced to the front burner by California’s severe drought will also have repercussions in Humboldt County as well...
