Farm Bureau Organization
The mission of New York Farm Bureau is "Supporting today’s agricultural needs and creating member opportunities for tomorrow through advocacy and education."
The forward looking NYFB vision is "The voice of New York agriculture that unites a diverse farm community and builds a stronger food system and rural economy."
Farm Bureau is a non-governmental, volunteer organization financed and controlled by member families for the purpose of solving economic and public policy issues challenging the agricultural industry.
Farm Bureau‘s "grassroots" policy development process continues to ensure that the organization represents the majority position of its membership. Policy development begins at the county level with problem identification and culminates at the New York Farm Bureau Annual Meeting with resolutions addressing the issues.
Our success in implementing policies depends upon our active, well-informed membership guided by the efforts of many dedicated volunteer leaders.
