Farm Bureau is our members.
Farm Bureau is an independent, non-government, voluntary organization governed by and representing farm families united for the purpose of analyzing their problems and formulating action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement, and thereby, to promote the national well-being.
Farm Bureau is local, county, state, national and international in its scope and influence and is non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-secret in character.
Farm Bureau is the voice of agricultural producers at all levels.
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB) is a state branch of American Farm Bureau Federation.
- Only regular (farming and farm-related) members set the policies of the organization and its activities through grassroots policy development.
- Only regular members are permitted to hold office and vote on policies.
- Associate members may participate in and take advantage of all Farm Bureau programs, except policy development.
Policies adopted by the regular membership control PFB at all levels. It is through policy development that the first step is taken to develop effective programs for agriculture. Policy execution is conducted by an active lobbying effort with county and state Farm Bureau leaders and the cooperation of the PFB staff.
PFB is the recognized spokesman for its members in the PA General Assembly and the U.S. Congress. It is actively involved in both legislative and regulatory activities of government at the county, state and national levels by working to enact policies adopted by the membership.
