A letter from our President

It is no secret that the current COVID-19 pandemic is impacting all of our lives. While we as farmers and ranchers are deemed essential, we are not immune to the reality that the Coronavirus causes daily changes and challenges.

In the midst of this ever-changing time, I want to encourage you to continue the good work of providing food and fiber for your family, our state and our world. You are essential.

Our state leadership team and staff are working to ensure that you have the tools necessary to be successful and to remain viable through this difficult time. We continue to add additional resources to our resources page, as well as provide email and social media updates. If you have specific questions regarding your farming operation, please contact one of our staff members. They are engaged and ready to support you in any way they can. Additionally, if you have suggestions or resources to be added to our resources page, please email us at info@wsfb.com.

Now more than ever the world is shining a light on the importance of agriculture. We must rise to the call and continue to provide even through this difficult time. Most importantly, I hope you know that the Washington Farm Bureau team is here to support you. Keep working hard and continue to make us Farm Bureau proud.
