Our History


The Placer County Farm Bureau was established in 1914 to find solutions for " …the farm, the farm home, and the rural community." Today, nearly 100 years later, the Placer County Farm Bureau is still serving as the voice of local agriculture, by championing the industry’s success through education, outreach and political action.


The total gross value for Placer County’s agricultural products in 2007 reached almost $60 million. The top five agricultural crops in Placer County are: rice, nursery products, cattle, timber and walnuts. Numerous other popular and specialty crops are produced in the county, including winegrapes, mandarins and honey bees (apiary). Our rolling-hill landscape and semi-arid climate lend themselves to small- scale niche market production, and our local farmers’ market system is active and popular.


The Placer County Farm Bureau office is located at 10120 Ophir Road in Newcastle, CA, in the same building as the Placer County Farm Supply store. The Farm Supply store was established in 1950 as an agricultural cooperative purchasing association under the auspices of the state-wide Farm Bureau organization. Today, the store affords farmers and the general public with the opportunity to purchase-at competitive prices- a broad array of farm supplies, including gift items, fencing, agricultural sprays, veternarian supplies,feed,ranch and western wear.


Placer County Farm Bureau is a part of the California Farm Bureau Federation, a statewide organization of farmers and ranchers with 53 member county Farm Bureau organizations serving 56 California Counties. The California Farm Bureau Federation is part of the American Farm Bureau Federation, a national organization of farmers and ranchers with member state Farm Bureau organizations in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
