Adelaida Farm Center
Congratulation to Mr. Brandon Wiebe for being elected as 2010 Adelaida Farm Center Chair!
Adelaida Farm Center has been meeting, steadily, for around 80 years. The Center was set up originally as a place for the local ranchers and farmers to meet to socialize, exchange ideas and information and discuss all manners of life affecting them from canning fruit to politics. In the past, the Adelaida area membership was made up of cattle ranchers and a few small dairies along with farmers growing grain, nut crops, beans and fruit. There were also mining interests ongoing, with the quicksilver mines and eventually lime mining.
Nowadays, the commodities grown in the area are largely dominated by wine grapes, which are the largest crop in acreage, aside from cattle producers. All Farm Bureau Members and guests are welcome to attend the meetings which are the third Friday of each month September through June with a hiatus for July and August. The meetings are held at 6:30 in the historic Adelaida School (9001 Chimney Rock Road) in the beautiful Adelaida rolling hills area West of Paso Robles. Farm Center meetings include potluck dinner and a guest speaker. To be a voting Adelaida Farm Center member, one has to be a dues paying Farm Bureau member of San Luis Obispo County Farm Bureau.
