Farm bureau holds annual membership dinner

The Patrick County Farm Bureau held its annual membership dinner and meeting this past Saturday in Stuart. Approximately 70 people enjoyed the dinner, fellowship and door prizes along with an informative meeting with several guest speakers.
The primary purpose of the annual meeting is to elect county Farm Bureau officers for the coming year and to adopt policy recommendations, some of which will be forwarded to the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation for consideration at the statewide Annual Convention.
The county meeting is vital to overall Farm Bureau activity and policy. The yearly gathering is the first step in Farm Bureau’s grassroots approach to agricultural policy and legislation. Local issues adopted become official policy for the Patrick County Farm Bureau. State and national resolutions are forwarded to a statewide resolutions meeting.
Patrick County Farm Bureau is one of 88 county Farm Bureaus in the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. With nearly 127,000 members, VFBF is Virginia’s largest farmers’ advocacy group.
Farm Bureau is a non-governmental, nonpartisan, voluntary organization committed to protecting Virginia’s farms and ensuring a safe, fresh and locally grown food
