Humboldt Farm Bureau to mark 100th year
The Humboldt County Farm Bureau. the oldest Farm Bureau in California, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this weekend. According to the CFBF's Food and Farm News, the office opened in 1913 to assure that local farmers had access to agricultural research from the new University of California farm advisor program. As such, Humboldt County became the second in the nation with a local Farm Bureau. The organization celebrates Saturday with a family festival and dinner.
