Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB) is a professional organization which is financed and controlled by members. When a family or individual joins, they actually enroll in a County Farm Bureau. There are 54 County Farm Bureaus, serving 66 counties in Pennsylvania.
There are two types of family memberships:
1) Farmer Member* - a person who is actively engaged in the production of agricultural products, whose principal occupation is farming. Only Farmer members have the privilege of voting on Farm Bureau policy issues.
2) Non-Farmer Member* - anyone who is interested in agriculture and where their food comes from, whose family or livelihood benefits from agriculture or is involved with agriculture on a part-time basis. Non-farmer members are able to utilize most privileges of membership
(except for voting on Farm Bureau policy issues).
* Membership Dues Are Non-Refundable
Please Note: The membership year is the same as the calendar year. Persons who join the Farm Bureau for the first time between July 1-December 30 of any year will become members for the rest of that calendar year and for the entire next calendar year. Persons who join for the first time between January 1-June 30 are members until December 30 of that year. In subsequent years, members receive their first dues notice for the next year's renewal membership on or about September 1.
