California Bountiful TV season to begin on Feb. 25

California Bountiful TV, the California Farm Bureau’s weekly program that connects people with the food they eat and the farmers and ranchers who grow and raise it, will debut its new season Feb. 25 with new host and executive producer Aubrey Aquino.

A California native raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Aquino is a longtime media professional in lifestyle and entertainment television. Before joining the California Farm Bureau last summer, she was a host for Bay Area LIFE on ABC 7 KGO-TV in San Francisco, as well as for Your California Life on ABC 10 KXTV in Sacramento.

Her media experience also includes work for CNN, E! News, the NFL Network and iHeart Media.

“The show is about the people, places, food and farms that make California so delicious,” Aquino said of the new California Bountiful TV season. “There’s farm to fork, farm to beauty, farm to closet, agritourism and, of course, California wines. Plus, I’m a California girl, so it’s exciting to be telling these stories about California’s bounty.”

  1. Gee, Tracy Sellers is so much more genuine….sad, so sad, can already see slower more staged vibe….well adios,

    • Hi JoAnn –

      I’m sorry you feel that way. Have you taken the time to watch the new season? I hope you give it a chance. Tracy decided to move on from the Farm Bureau last Spring, so I’m grateful for the opportunity to take the lead and keep the show going. ~ Aubrey

    • Hi Lloyd – Tracy departed the Farm Bureau last spring on her own accord. We wish her the best and hopefully you can continue to support the legacy of the show.

  2. Hope you “showcase” the Ag Universities in California once in a while. They have offered so much to the ag industry in California over the years. Universities such as Cal Poly SLO, Chico State, Fresno State, Cal Poly Pomona, Davis…

  3. California Bountiful is lucky to have a seasoned host like you! Looking forward to seeing the new season 🙌

  4. Welcome Aubrey. I liked Tracy very much too but your first show was refreshing. Living in Minnesota, at this time of year we like to see most anything green, growing, colorful and fresh. California Bountiful flies by way to fast.

  5. I’m a big fan of California Bountiful. Love seeing California’s agriculture. Looking forward to the new season and what your energy will bring. We renewed our subscription to the magazine, too.

  6. As a gardener ourselves and a YouTuber “Robbie and Gary Gardening Easy” helping people garden all over the world, it is nice to see a fresh new look, show looks really cool

  7. Change is good. Glad to see the show is still going strong and Aubrey is doing a wonderful job. Let’s continue watching the entire season.

  8. Now hold on folks. Watching from here on our farm north of the big village of Oakland, Illinois (village of about 900 people) on RFDTV as we have for many years. Tracy was great. Audrey is doing just fine taking over and carrying the show forward. Please keep an open mind and give her a chance. This week’s episode was as good as any I’ve seen…Dakota Shy wine, herbs, then the mid-county fairgrounds with FFA mention. The range is incredible and appreciated. Outstanding!

  9. I bet it was an equity move to replace Tracy. I have nothing against the new host – but I would bet a lot of money that race is involved in this move. I hate racism – so it’s time for me to unsubscribe.

  10. I like the relaxed pace of Aubrey. Change is inevitable and Tracy was ready for a change. A new voice and face of ‘Cal. Bou.’ Welcome Aubrey!
    I, too, would love to see the Universities with strong Ag. Programs featured. It would open up an added demographic.
    I live in San Luis Obispo County with generational agricultural California roots. Feel free to be in touch.

  11. I do miss Tracy, but in all fairness, Aubrey deserves a chance. I think many people have become so used to Tracy as host, any new person will be scrutinized.
    But really, the main point to remember is that this is a show about California and Californians, our agriculture, our cuisine, and our lifestyle. These are the reasons I record this show, and one of the many reasons that make me proud to be a Californian.

  12. I cannot look at this show without Traci. It is not the same. Cal Bountiful and Traci go hand in hand…one cannot expect to see and hear one without the other. So very disappointed. Perhaps you should rename and revamp the show at this point.
