As President of the California Farm Bureau, Paul Wenger has been in the office for over six years. A third-generation farmer, Wenger grows almonds and walnuts on the family farm, which includes property purchased by his grandfather in 1910. His farming operations also include sharecropping, custom farm work and walnut hulling. He has expanded his operation to include the processing and marketing of almonds and walnuts through his Wood Colony Nut Company to provide an opportunity for the fourth generation of the family to vertically integrate into the family farming operation.
Wenger attended Modesto Junior College before transferring to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where he earned a degree in animal science. He has served on the Salida Volunteer Fire Department, the Hart-Ransom School Board of Trustees, and the Stanislaus Land Trust and Agricultural Pavilion Boards.
