Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers are active agriculturists between the ages of 18 and 35 who are involved in production, banking, business and many other areas of the industry. Young Farmers and Ranchers develop leadership skills while volunteering time as active, vital members of the Kern County Farm Bureau.
As a member of Young Farmers and Ranchers your voice will join those of your peers to speak out for agriculture. As you develop your skills and knowledge, your efforts will help Farm Bureau effectively represent all farmers and ranchers.
YF & R is involved in fund raising events that help support agricultural outreach projects aimed at educating the public on the benefits and importance of agriculture. These projects include Ag in the Classroom and Farm Day in the City.
YF & R members also have the opportunity to attend the State YF&R Leadership Conference every year in March. This is a great opportunity to polish leadership skills as well as network with other YF & R members from around the state.
The Kern County Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers have been busy planning many events! Keep checking this webpage for upcoming events and ways to help support Kern County Young Farmers and Ranchers.

Re-cap of YF&R Gleaning Activity on September 15, 2012
Kern County Young Farmers & Ranchers (Kern YF&R) working together to donate food, money and time for their local food bank is just part of a larger tribute called “Harvest for All”, a partnership between the American Farm Bureau Federation and Feeding America. Saturday, September 15, a group of Kern YF&R members gathered in a Mettler pepper field donated by a Kern County Farm Bureau Board Member. They spent the morning harvesting a total of 385 pounds of peppers and collected more than 150 pounds of onions. All produce was donated to the Community Action Partnership of Kern to be distributed to local food banks throughout Kern County.
