Farm Bureau Voices

“I’ve been given so many opportunities to make a real difference as a Farm Bureau member. Not only can I serve the local community but I have lobbied in Sacramento and Washington to support local farmers and ranchers. That’s the power of Farm Bureau.”

Pat Wirz

“I am personally passionate about educating our youth about agriculture. No other organization is more dedicated to this mission than Ag in the Classroom which was started by Farm Bureau. My membership has enabled me to have a voice at the local, state, and national seats of government.”
