"California Bountiful" provides a fast-paced look at subjects important to us all; the food, wine, flowers, meats and fiber products grown in the state and enjoyed far and wide every day.
"California Bountiful", from the California Farm Bureau Federation, educates and entertains viewers about the family farmers and ranchers who grow the foods you love to eat.
We introduce you to California's rural communities by putting a face and voice to the people behind the commodities you enjoy. Stories cover the gamut of how food gets to your table, from farm to fork. In addition, there are cooking segments with expertise from some of California's most talented chefs as well as produce and gardening segments educating viewers on everything from picking the best cherry to planting their own home garden.
Host and associate producer, Tracy Sellers, has been reporting on the show since 2003. She brings energy, enthusiasm and depth to her reports. In addition, "California Bountiful" stories are narrated by Sellers, Charlotte Fadipe and Dennis Newhall.
The collective goal is to tell the farmer's story in a fresh and exciting way, and to ensure the message is delivered in a way that is interesting and has value to the urban viewer.
The show was originally known as The Voice of Agriculture when it was created in 1964, but changed the name in 1996, to add to the appeal of urban viewers and mark an exciting new direction.
