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.
