We engage in a number of activities aimed at promoting agriculture in California, and particularly in the Santa Maria Valley. We do that in the following ways:
We offer local agricultural students thousands of dollars in scholarships each year.
We promote educational programs that help local educators and their students understand the importance of agriculture.
We actively engage elected officials to help them better understand the issues facing agriculture and how agriculture contributes to our communities.
We represent ag to all members of our community to develop and maintain the public's positive view of farmers.
