WHO is HFUU?
YOU are Farmers Union!
We are a grassroots, producer-driven organization that believes strong family agriculture is the basis for thriving rural communities. Those communities, in turn, are vital to the health and economic well-being of the entire U.S. economy.
The key to our success and credibility has been Farmers Union’s grassroots structure in which policy positions are initiated locally. Whether the issue is food safety, dairy, specialty crops, trade or any other item facing America’s family farmers – Farmers Union listens to its members. The National Policy Board Chair is an Organic Farmer.
Our membership includes family farmers, fisherman, ranchers and consumers in all 50 states. Farmers Union has 25 state/regional organizations but even in states where there is no formal state organization, you’re likely to find Farmers has a presence. If you are from one of these states, join as a member of the national organization.
