Valley Land Alliance at a Glance
Valley Land Alliance is driven by four simple goals:
(1) Ensure safe, domestic food supplies
(2) Ensure that farming and ranching remain economically viable and attract jobs that complement a dynamic agricultural economy
(3) Advocate that future development incorporates and pays for infrastructure, such as: roads, sewage systems, reliable water and schools
(4) Support growth that is compact and maximizes density within existing city boundaries
VALLEY LAND ALLIANCE
Our Mission is to Educate and Build Alliances to protect our uniquely productive California Central Valley farmland.
We understand the importance environmental education plays in our ability to preserve agricultural lands. That is why we have hosted local forums, provided educational tours around the San Joaquin River, and offered a variety of family friendly activities for people of all ages to familiarize themselves with the environment. We publish a biannual newsletters to keep subscribers informed.
We have worked with a variety of organizations throughout the years, and continue to do so. We have partnered with Merced County Farm Bureau, the Merced Alliance for Responsible Growth, the Merced Chapter of the Sierra Club, the Planada and LeGrand Associations, Farmland Working Group, The Farmer’s Union, The San Joaquin Chapter of the California Alliance of Family Farmers, the American Farmland Trust and the Sierra Nevada Alliance.

Agriculture not only gives riches to a nation, but the only riches she can call her own.
