California & 2023 Farm Bill

The Farm Bill creates jobs. California's 69,000 farms and ranches produce more than 50 percent of the nation’s fruits, nuts and vegetables; 18 percent of the milk; and more than 400 different agricultural commodities. Investment in agriculture is an investment in our nation's future. Farm Bill programs support farm competitiveness, help to revitalize rural communities, ensure affordable and healthy food to those that needs it most, and promote conservation and environmental stewardship on working lands.
