The Benefits of Membership


MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Farm Bureau is the “Voice of Agriculture” and an advocate for farmers and landowners at the local, state, and national level. Your membership ensures that Farm Bureau is able to carry out its mission of representing the producers of food, fiber, and shelter. You are also investing in a safe, abundant, and affordable food supply, protecting our natural resources, and sustaining a strong economic base for America. Georgia Farm Bureau serves more than 250,000 member families through 158 county Farm Bureau offices located throughout the state. Most of the money you pay in dues remains in your county to be utilized by your local Farm Bureau on your behalf. Since its beginning in 1937, Georgia Farm Bureau has continued to expand and improve services for you – our valuable member families. In the early years, most Farm Bureau members were farmers, but today’s membership includes Georgians from ALL walks of life. Many services, discounts and benefit programs have been added to increase the value of membership with the goal that every family receives more in benefits than the annual $35 membership dues. Leadership and staff are committed to this goal for future generations. We hope you take full advantage of all the benefits that come with being a Farm Bureau member. I invite you to see for yourself the tremendous dividends you will receive from investing in your Farm Bureau. We appreciate your support of Georgia’s families and agriculture. THANK YOU for allowing us the privilege of serving you and your family.

ABOUT GEORGIA FARM BUREAU

THE GEORGIA FARM BUREAU INSURANCE REVIEW Are you an “insurance expert”? Do you understand what’s covered in your insurance policies? Are you skilled at evaluating risks that can threaten your home, your family, your retirement or your finances? For most of us, the answer to some or all of these questions is “no.” Insurance is one of the largest purchases households make every year, but is also one that most consumers know the least about. Wouldn’t it be great to have an “insurance expert” available when you need one? As a Georgia Farm Bureau Member, you do! The Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance Review is a service for GFB Members that helps you understand and manage risk as well as understand the insurance products you purchase. This free service is available to all GFB Members, even those who purchase insurance somewhere else. We are “insurance experts,” and can help your family protect what you have worked so hard for.

Georgia Farm Bureau is Georgia’s largest and strongest voluntary agricultural organization with over 250,000 members. It is an independent, non-governmental organization. The membership is composed of members who want Georgia to be agriculturally successful, progressive and prosperous. Formed in 1937 by 50 farmers, Georgia Farm Bureau continues to have a strong grassroots network with 158 county Farm Bureau organizations. Since its inception, the primary, ongoing goal of Farm Bureau is to be a united voice in the legislative arena, to promote farm markets and to provide leadership and assistance to Georgia’s agricultural community. Farm Bureau is local, state, national and international in scope and influence. A member of a county Farm Bureau automatically becomes affiliated with the Georgia Farm Bureau and the American Farm Bureau. Farm Bureau members work together to analyze problems and formulate action plans to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement thereby promoting prosperity and growth. Our grassroots policy development process and county programs assure members of constant contact and input into the programs and activities of Georgia Farm Bureau. Members determine the future of their organization. Membership is not limited to farmers. Anyone interested in agriculture and participating in one of Farm Bureau’s many services may join. Farm Bureau is dedicated to continually improving and expanding service-tomember programs.
