As the local population grows, it’s important that Farm Bureau play an active role in shaping future urban growth. Protecting the fertile agriculture land that Stanislaus and Tuolumne County depend on is the task of committee’s in both counties. Stanislaus County Farm Bureau’s executive committee is tasked with operating a Land Use, Finance & Membership committee to address these issues. In Tuolumne County, Farm Bureau holds a seat on the Ag Advisory Committee for Tuolumne County and the Yosemite Stanislaus Solutions, a collaborative working the National Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management on forest issues.
