The Fresno County Department of Agriculture, under direction of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is responsible for conducting regulatory and service functions pertaining to the multi-billion dollar agricultural industry in Fresno County. These functions are mandated by state and federal laws and regulations and by local measures and ordinances by the Fresno County Board of Supervisors. Even though the enforcement of these laws and regulations is an important part of the Specialist's jobs, the primary purpose and objective of this Office is the promotion and protection of the county agricultural industry and the general public.
