Dear Farm Gate Readers:
With this issue, Farm Gate resumes its normal twice-monthly publication schedule. We went weekly in April and May as coronavirus turned our world outside-in. That accelerated pace was meant to be of practical benefit during a crazy time, but as some kind of normalcy comes back into focus, we’re eager to embrace it and get reacquainted!
Our central purpose continues to be bringing together in one place everything interesting and important regarding Farm Bureau programs and departments, with foremost priority on sharing opportunities for our grassroots members — you — to get involved.
Without your involvement, Farm Bureau simply doesn’t function, and arguably doesn’t even exist.
Our weekly experiment only reinforced the truth that Farm Bureau family members are a tight-knit bunch who rise to challenges, fights through them, and just…keeps…moving…forward.
Accordingly, we’ll also continue to pursue ad vocem membrum — the voice of the member — so don’t act surprised when we come looking for yours. Our Farm Bureau family would vanish without it.
