Annual V.I.P. Luncheon

Our annual Marin County Farm Bureau V.I.P. Luncheon took place Tuesday, October 4th, at the Pomi Ranch in Marin County.  The purpose of this luncheon is to invite our elected representatives, department heads, planning commissioners, planning staff and other agriculture related organizations to share an informal lunch with Marin County Farm Bureau members and board members.

The luncheon is held each year on a ranch in Marin County and for the past few years it’s been at the Pomi Ranch.  This is a chance for Marin County farmers and ranchers to share with our elected representatives a little about the lifestyles we lead for a better understanding of where we’re coming from when speaking on county and state issues.

Some of the attendees this year included, Assemblyman Jared Huffman, Marin County Supervisor Steve Kinsey, aide to Jared Huffman, Jenny Calloway and current President of Marin County Farm Bureau, Dominic Grossi.
