2021 Membership Campaign

Membership Update for March 26, 2021

There is one week to go in the 2021 Membership Campaign. Our county membership teams have worked hard to communicate the value of membership to their friends, family, neighbors and local businesses. If you have not joined or renewed yet, we would like to invite you to join an organization that works together with farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen communities. 

As of today we have 66,023 paid active member families and continue to track toward our goal. The last day of the campaign is March 31, 2021, and our final target report will be April 2, 2021. 

County Farm Bureaus are important to the success of the organization. Congratulations to the following counties that have achieved active gain or higher at this point.

County Farm Bureaus in Action

Farm Bureau Day at Rural King
This Pike County Farm Bureau membership team never gives up… they are working hard to reach their active membership goal! Members were able to renew their membership, or prospective members could join and receive a $10 Rural King gift card and 32 ounce tumbler. Hotdogs, water and chips were provided to those who attended and they could also purchase popcorn to support the county Farm Bureau.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
