Our members are our policy makers. We engage elected officials on issues that come directly from our membership and press lawmakers to implement and enforce laws and regulations that will strengthen agriculture in Michigan.
Michigan Farmers Union’s membership is as diverse as the agricultural landscape in our state and includes grain farmers, vegetable growers, fruit growers, livestock farmers and dairy farmers. All our members play a role in bringing the issues that matter most to lawmakers in Michigan and fighting for their rights as family farmers.
Michigan Farmers Union is a home for all family farmers who are committed to conserving our state’s natural bounty – whether they are long-established or beginning their agricultural journey.
Michigan Farmers Union has been the voice of family farmers, rural residents and consumers across the state since our founding. We believe the needs of Michigan’s farm economy are every bit as important as the policy priorities of Wall Street and Corporate America. We are the dedicated voice of family farming, and we aim to preserve a sustainable economy that benefits each of us where we live while providing domestically grown, healthy choices for consumers.
If you are a family farmer or rural resident dedicated to preserving your way of life. If you are a consumer and you believe it’s important to buy locally from someone you know and trust. If you believe in sustainability and want to see an economy that works just as well for the little guy as it does for the big guy. If you are concerned about any of these issues, then we invite you to join Michigan Farmers Union. We work every day to further all of these priorities and many more.
