A new home for the Farm Bureau
The San Diego County Farm Bureau will be moving from its longtime headquarters at 1670 E. Valley Parkway to a new location just down the road, at 1540 E. Valley Parkway.
The bureau’s building committee looked all over North County for a new home for the farming organization that represents local growers. According to Bureau President Ken Altman, writing in this month’s San Diego Grown, “After a search that took our building committee all across North County, early this year a fore sale sign just one block to the west of the recently sold homestead caught our eye. The building almost under our nose . . . turned out to be just what we had been hoping to find.”
The building is 15,000 square feet, larger than other buildings they looked at. But the price was right. “Just as important,” wrote Altman,” was the discovery of a tenant that wanted to occupy the entire first floor.” That was Neighborhood Healthcare. The remaining 7,500 will be just the right size for the Farm Bureau, the University of California Cooperative Extension Service, and Montoya Insurance Agency, which has rented from the Bureau for many years.
The organization hopes to have the building ready to occupy by autumn.
