Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s 72nd annual Meeting will take place November 14-16, 2022 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey. In addition to celebrating PFB’s accomplishments, hundreds of members will gather to elect leaders and establish our policies on farming and rural life issues. We will honor achievements in membership and Farm Bureau’s accomplishments over the past year.  We will also recognize farmers who have made an impact on agriculture in Pennsylvania.

This year at Monday’s banquet, attendees will hear from speaker Gian Paul Gonzalez, whose inspirational talks have made him an internationally renowned speaker for the NBA, NFL, & many Fortune 500 organizations. Other highlights of PFB’s annual meeting will be valuable seminars that can help farm operations, Young Ag Professional discussion meet contests and the 23rd annual meeting health fair.
