About Us

The Kern County Cooperative Extension office is most commonly recognized as the Farm and Home Advisors Office.  Cooperative Extension advisors are local representatives of the University of California and the resources of the institution are as close as your telephone and a local call. 

We have over 3,000 different University, U.S.D.A., and locally produced publications, most of which are provided with little or no charge.  Advisors are available for consultation on your particular problem at no charge.

Cooperative Extension provides homeowners and urban gardeners information on a wide variety of subjects such as gardening, home orchards, house plants, pest control, diagnosis of problems, etc.
