Staying in Tune With Our Legislature
Once each year a group of 160 men and women assemble for a special duty in Tallahassee. What they do affects all of us. Their collective assembly, the Florida Legislature, has the primary task of establishing a budget for state government. But in the process they address a range of policy issues.
Grassroots Partnerships At Work
Good people make good things happen. Florida Farm Bureau members proved the point last month during our organization’s 2015 Legislative Days.
They created the momentum for a most successful citizens’ lobbying initiative at our state Capitol. Their willingness to travel to Tallahassee and meet with our lawmakers will make a real difference in public policy making.
Farm Bureau Legislative Priorities
In our busy lives major events seem to roll around quickly. It’s time again for Florida’s state lawmakers to begin their regular session.
I can assure you that Florida Farm Bureau has already identified our organization’s major priorities. Our board of directors adopted a set of key policy issues, creating the framework we will use to approach legislative proposals as they are introduced and debated.
A Cheer For Our Christmas Tradition
There are many Floridians living today who remember a different Christmas experience. They can recall what the celebration was like before World War II.
The fundamental religious meaning of Christmas was the same, of course. But material conditions were quite different—especially in rural areas.
A Dedicated State Board Supports Farm Bureau
Farm Bureau is blessed to have exceptional human talent. Some of the best talent available is supplied by our volunteer leaders.
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.
We hear a lot of commentary these days about Congressional gridlock. But members of Florida’s Congressional delegation are willing to take action in support of our farm families.oduction...

As indicated by its mission statement, Florida Farm Bureau operates to increase the household incomes of farmers and ranchers and improve the quality of rural life.
As the largest general farm organization in Florida, we are proud to serve as the Voice of Florida Agriculture. But Farm Bureau offers more than just the quest for a positive bottom line. We also represent the values and aspirations shared by most Floridians.
