Farm Bureau Week kicks off Monday, Feb. 20 and will last until Friday, Feb. 24. This week allows Farm Bureau members to host different activities and events to help promote Farm Bureau within their communities.
It is also a great opportunity for county Farm Bureaus to gain members and become active in the community. Many county offices will host an Open House to allow those interested in Farm Bureau to stop by and learn more about the organization.
