Union County Farm Bureau
Education and Ag Promotion
Union County Farm Bureau and its members are actively involved in bringing agriculture to the forefront of their community. Union County recognizes the value of youth groups such as FFA and 4-H and are proud sponsors of the Greenhand Awards at the annual Lake Butler FFA Banquet as well as platinum sponsors of the Running for Health 4-H 5K which brought nearly 100 participants together. The event was hosted by Growers and Showers 4-H Club.
The Young Farmers and Ranchers leadership group play a significant role during Farm-City Week by graciously cooking the chicken that was provided by UCFB.
The UCFB Women’s Committee also participates in youth agricultural education and on Ag Literacy Day they visit schools throughout the community and read to students.
