Agricultural Member

Yearly Dues: $300

Any member who expects to receive income during the coming year from actual farming operations, either as an owner, lessor, lessee, or officer, substantial shareholder or full-time employee of such owner, lessor or lessee. Any member who received income from farming in the past five years, or expects to receive income from the farming industry also qualifies to be an agricultural member with voting rights. Agricultural Members receive the weekly “Ag Alert,” California’s number one agricultural trade journal.

Dog in Farm

Associate Member

Yearly Dues: $100

Anyone may join as a sustaining member to show their support for agriculture and farming. Another great benefit is an annual subscription to the popular “California Bountiful” magazine.
