California County Farm Bureaus Honored

  print email

Three county Farm Bureaus in California have earned national recognition for creative programs that support local agriculture and invite people not familiar with farming and ranching to learn more about the bounty of California. The Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau, Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau and Shasta County Farm Bureau won County Activities of Excellence Awards, presented by the American Farm Bureau Feder-ation’s membership.

The county Farm Bureaus from California will be among 25 from throughout the nation to be showcased during the AFBF Annual Meeting in January in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau saw a need in its community and set to work filling it. Farm Bureau leaders noticed that because of financial challenges, many high school students were wearing borrowed Future Farmers of America jackets. That resulted in what the Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau called the Blue Jacket Bonanza program, through which students can find a way to earn their jackets.

This marks the second consecutive year the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau earned an award for one of its educational programs.
