Who is Farm Bureau?
Farm Bureau is made up of regular and associate members.
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.
