The mission of the Lewis County Farm Bureau is to increase public awareness and support of agriculture, promote agricultural production and positively impact the lives of farmers and ranchers in Lewis County and throughout Washington State with solutions for the challenges faced by agriculture, forestry and natural resources as we practice good stewardship of our lands.

Our Mission

Our Function

At the Lewis County Farm Bureau, we are dedicated to promoting safe, affordable, and high-quality food production while supporting a robust local economy. As a grassroots organization, we are part of the broader Washington Farm Bureau (WFB), the state's largest agricultural organization, which is truly the Voice of Agriculture.

Farm Bureau is an independent, non-governmental, voluntary organization governed by and representing farm and ranch families. Our primary focus is on educational improvement, economic opportunities, and social advancement to enhance the well-being of agricultural families. We advocate for these principles at the local, county, state, and national levels.

Our policies and initiatives are born at the local level and move up through county, state, and national forums. Lewis County Farm Bureau is a local arm of this larger movement, and our politically active members are dedicated to speaking out on issues that matter to rural America.

Nationally, Farm Bureau represents over 5.5 million member families from 2,800 county Farm Bureaus, all federated to form state Farm Bureaus, which, in turn, make up the American Farm Bureau Federation. In Washington, the Farm Bureau includes more than 46,000 member families.

At the state level, Washington Farm Bureau's lobby team vigorously defends the rights of our state's farmers and ranchers. Our strength lies in our grassroots approach, advocating for agricultural interests from the county level to the state level and on to the national stage. Lewis County Farm Bureau is proud to be a vital part of this network, dedicated to supporting the needs of our local agricultural community and contributing to the broader agricultural movement in Washington and across the United States.
