The Fresno County Farm Bureau was recently recognized by the national American Farm Bureau Federation for its “Valley’s Gold” television program.


The Fresno County Farm Bureau won a “County Activities of Excellence” (CAE) for the program, which was created in partnership with ValleyPBS.

Hosted by CEO Ryan Jacobsen, the program — now in its fourth season — gives viewers an in-depth view on how crops are planted, harvested and processed.

“From crops, such as grapes, peaches, okra, basil and seeds, to animal care takers, ag technology, and crop specialists, Valley’s Gold takes viewers on a remarkable ‘agventure,’” according to a Bureau news release.

The CAE Awards program chooses Farms with activities that serve as models of innovation for local program development and that also help build strong agricultural communities. The CAE Awards showcases up to 24 of the top individual and up to four of the top multi-county collaborative Farm Bureau activities in the nation. In all, 34 county  Bureaus from 11 states were selected for the County Activities of Excellence Awards.
