FARMING BOVINA was formed in 2012 to support and perpetuate Bovina’s proud agricultural tradition. Bovina’s farming heritage is central to the economic, social and environmental vitality of the town and surrounding areas. Farming Bovina is dedicated to assisting local farms by encouraging and supporting agriculture. Our current efforts include marketing, public awareness of farming activity within the town and actions to protect farms and farming.
Farming Bovina’s marketing efforts include both a website, where farm members are listed with descriptions of their farms and products, and advertisements in local publications. In addition, Farming Bovina has been asked to take on the responsibility of producing the hugely successful annual Labor Day weekend event, Bovina Farm Day.
Public awareness of Bovina’s busy agricultural activities will be increased by posting signs at the entrances to the town announcing Bovina as a farming community. These signs will also ask drivers to be alert for farm vehicles on the road.
Farming Bovina realizes the integral role agriculture plays in the community. Now, more than ever, our farms and farmers carry on a tradition that ensures the continuation and protection of the landscape and character of the town we all enjoy. Our goals and efforts strive to guarantee the protection of agricultural activities while ensuring the general health, safety and welfare of the entire community.
With your help Farming Bovina can continue in its efforts to promote and support agriculture in Bovina. Become a part of Bovina’s future, a future where agriculture remains and grows as a vital part of the community
