Rooted in Agriculture

The Merced County Farm Bureau is a nonprofit grassroots organization that advocates for farmers, ranchers and dairy families in Merced County. For many students, both in rural and urban areas, the understanding of where food and fiber comes from and the impact agriculture has on their daily lives is many times misunderstood. To aid in informing local students about agriculture the Merced County Farm Bureau host an annual FARM2U Day for local third grade students to participate in. On average FARM2U Day host 2,400 students, teachers, and volunteers. In addition, Merced County Farm Bureau staff participates in a number of on campus Ag Days. Although this is a valiant effort by our organization, volunteers, and educators we know that there are thousands of students that are missing out on the opportunity to learn about the importance of agriculture. For this reason, we have created this rewards program.  The winner of this rewards program will receive $500 to be used toward classroom supplies, these supplies need not be related any particular agriculture lesson.
