Pa. Farm Bureau reaches milestone


CAMP HILL, Pa. — Pennsylvania Farm Bureau has eclipsed the 61,000 member mark for the first time in the 65-year history of the statewide farmer-run organization.

PFB added 1,642 total members over the past year to reach an all-time membership high of 61,406.
As a result of the membership increase, PFB qualified for the American Farm Bureau Federation Navigator Award.

Farm family volunteers played a major role in helping our organization increase membership for the 18th consecutive year by encouraging others in the agricultural community to join Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, said PFB President Rick Ebert.

PFB noted that a growing membership and the true grassroots involvement of farmers makes Farm Bureau more influential when presenting a unified message to policymakers at the state and national level.

  1. I have a Pennsylvania Farm Bureau Co-Operative notebook dated 1944, used by my grandfather, E.L. Nixon. Doc Nixon was a noted potato farmer in Center County.
    Just curious whether this organization was a predecessor of the Farm Bureau. It offered “Quality and Service on a Wide Variety of Products”, including horse collars and brooms.
