How Does Farm Bureau Support Pennsylvanians?

Ramsburg Farm

Whether it’s local produce bound for the farmers’ markets, grain exported to faraway lands or an equestrian training center, Farm Bureau understands just how much government policies can impact how food is grown, shipped and sold.

Together, we work to ensure farms of all sizes and types can provide consumers safe, affordable and abundant food supplies.

Educators Ag InstituteFriends of Farm Bureau

Friends of Farm Bureau are an exclusive group of Pennsylvanians who care about the stories behind their food and drink and are dedicated to supporting the farmers who make it all happen.

Their membership supports Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s efforts to preserve the state’s agricultural heritage and ensure that family farms can continue to produce local food, grow their communities and promote responsible stewardship of the land and natural resources.
