Tulare County Farm Bureau Releases 3rd Edition of Source Book

Last year the Tulare County Farm Bureau celebrated 100 years of service to the farmers and ranchers of Tulare County. We are pleased to release the latest edition of the Source Book to recognize the businesses that support our farming community and the industry that we all want to protect and promote. In farming today we have to commit to memory a slew of information. Endless acronyms, countless phone numbers, emails and more. Sometimes I have all of this readily on my cell phone, other times I don’t. I often think wouldn’t it be great if I had all the numbers I need in one single place? Something I can grab, flip through quickly and not have to search for on the internet. Well, now we do! The Tulare County Farm Bureau Source Book. This booklet was developed in an effort to create an additional benefit to our members. Something they could keep on their desk or have handy in their truck to give all the contacts you need while farming in Tulare County. This booklet will help in tracking down the valuable information and contacts; a listing of businesses that support agriculture and offer services to farmers; a host of additional benefits, discounts and member services offered by Farm Bureau; and much more! Take a look. It is our hope this resource is beneficial to you and your business. If you have any suggestions in how we can make this Source Book better meet your needs, please give our office a call. In closing, I thank you for your continued support of Tulare County Farm Bureau. Without members like you we cannot do our diligence in promoting and enhancing the viability of Tulare County Agriculture! Sincerely,

ROGER EVERETT President
