Membership and Benefits

"Not everyone can be a farmer,

but everyone can be a Farm Bureau member."

New 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 Tulare County Farm Bureau. All members receive the TCFB monthly newspaper produced exclusively for Tulare County Farm Bureau members. Farmers and ranchers who receive income from production agriculture and those who receive income from the farming industry join as Agricultural Members and receive the weekly Ag Alert, California's number one agricultural trade journal.  All others join as Associate Members and receive the bimonthly California Bountiful, filled with useful information and background on food production, home gardening and other subjects. Businesses may join at a special rate to receive discounted advertising rates and other benefits, and may be listed under the agriculture or associate rate level as it pertains to their business.

Members are also eligible to receive TCFB E-News, the Farm Bureau's electronic newsletter sent out periodically.
