Commentary on current issues facing farmers

North Carolina Farm Bureau’s mission is “to serve farmers and provide a unified voice for the interests and needs of the farming community.” As an advocate for farmers, we’re engaged at the local, state, national, and international levels and intervene on the behalf of farmers in legislative and regulatory matters.
