Susquehanna County farmer Pauline Fallon (pictured left) has been elected as a new member of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB) State Board of Directors. As a representative on the board, Fallon will serve on behalf of farmers in District 1, which is made up of farmers from the Lackawanna, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming County Farm Bureaus.
“I thought it was an opportunity to give a voice to agriculture from someone who lives it every day. Hopefully farmers from this district will feel comfortable in reaching out to me,” said Pauline Fallon.
Fallon, who is a fifth generation farmer, operates a 190-cow dairy farm with her husband Paul. The couple also raises their own replacement heifers and grows hay and corn for silage on their 550 acre farm. Fallon’s key duties on the farm include overseeing employees and taking care of the animals.
Fallon succeeds Dave Williams, who reached the tenure limit on the board. Fallon has been involved in Farm Bureau for years, recently serving as second vice president of the Susquehanna County Farm Bureau and as co-chair of the policy development committee.
Fallon was nominated by caucuses of county Farm Bureaus in the 1st district and approved by Farm Bureau voting delegates during PFB’s 61th Annual Meeting in Hershey earlier this month.
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is the state’s largest farm organization with a volunteer membership of more than 53,000 farm and rural families, representing farms of every size and commodity across Pennsylvania.
