About US

Pennsylvania Farmers Union is committed to enhancing the quality of life for family farmers.
PFU was founded in 1982 to advocate for family farmers.

PFU members drive policy positions. Our members engage elected officials and public agencies, and press them to implement and enforce laws and regulations that will strengthen agriculture. Legislators from our Commonwealth look to PFU when deciding how to vote on policies that will have an impact on important agricultural issues.

  • SUSTAINABILITY:

    Pennsylvania farmers leverage resources from public agencies to develop sustainable practices that protect their long-term viability. PFU educates legislators about how small investments in our region can have a significant impact on our food, the environment and our economy.

  • CONSERVATION:

    Our Commonwealth is rich with natural resources and beauty. PFU advocates for policies that preserves our landscape while enhancing our economic well-being.

  • ENERGY & FOOD SECURITY:

    By promoting co-operative educational and business enterprises, PFU works to ensure that our children will live in a state that can feed and fuel itself.

  • DIRECT SALES:

    Our farmers rely on sales directly to consumers and local food producers. PFU fights to protect the economic viability of small-scale growers and producers.
