Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is a general farm organization providing legislative support, services and information to Pennsylvania's farmers and rural families since 1950. The Farm Bureau provides its farming members with representation in Washington and Harrisburg concerning legislation affecting the farming industry. The Farm Bureau is based on a grass roots structure whereby county Farm Bureaus and their leaders develop and implement policy to be determined at an annual meeting each year.
Legislation for which Farm Bureau has represented members has included: farmland preservation, commodity pricing, tort reform, property tax reduction, health insurance reform, Sunday hunting, water rights and wildlife management.
Some of the services Farm Bureau provides members with include: vehicle rebates, long distance telephone service, health insurance, a comprehensive list of insurance products through Nationwide Insurance Services, Safemark products, Grainger and Choice Hotels.
The Farm Bureau has a business services division for members needing tax and payroll preparation, business software and computers, accounting, legal advice and consulting.
Monthly publications and newsletters are produced to keep members informed as to legislative and organizational changes.
Community education concerning the importance of agriculture is pursued by the Mobile Ag Science Lab, Ag in the Classroom training for teachers at Penn State University each summer, ag days, farm shows and county events.
Ag scholarships are available for the Penn State School of Ag and Delaware Valley School of Ag through the PA Friends of Ag Foundation.
