Congressional Friends of Farm Bureau Named

The Friend of Farm Bureau Award is given by American Farm Bureau Federation and Florida Farm Bureau Federation to selected members of Congress in recognition of their outstanding support for farmers, ranchers and rural communities.
During each two-year Congressional session, members of the House of Representatives and the Senate are evaluated for their commitment to Farm Bureau priority initiatives.

In true grassroots fashion, county Farm Bureau leaders present the honor to recipients at various meetings, expressing appreciation for their efforts.

This year’s Friend of Farm Bureau Award winners among Florida’s Congressional delegation are:

Sen. Bill Nelson

Rep. Jeff Miller (FL-01)

  • Volunteers Will be Honored at the State Annual Meeting

    I always look forward to Florida Farm Bureau’s Annual Meeting. It is a bright stage designed to highlight the accomplishments of our fine volunteers.

    Their stellar record is the product of the exceptional character and commitment typical among farmers and their families.

    We have much to celebrate. We have taken bold strides to enhance our support of training and education for young people. In March our state board launched a major project to construct a new Florida FFA headquarters on our campus in Gainesville, a facility suitable for developing leaders into the next century.
