San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation

Harvest is keeping us all busy

BY JIM FERRARI, SJFB PRESIDENT

As I sit down to write today’s president’s message, I find myself with a healthy respect and appreciation for our fine staff, directors and executive team that keep things on track while I’m neck deep in walnut harvest.

We are truly blessed with many competent individuals united under a common purpose. We are all here to ensure that agriculture remains a strong and viable industry in San Joaquin County.

During this month we will be developing our positions on California Farm Bureau Federation policy and possible bylaw amendments. This is done in preparation for this year’s annual meeting in San Diego.

Since I have been removed from the operational focus of Farm Bureau due to harvest, I will let our staff inform you of the current issues this month.
