About Our Local

Our local chapter of the NFU is looking to grow our membership through community engagement. We have been contacting current members to find out what issues are of importance to them and their farms, and what kind of local events they would be interested in participating in. We’ve also been engaging food and farm enthusiasts with some of our events!


Why You Should Join Us

Local 312 is eager to get farmers together and hear about the issues that have the biggest impact on your farm. We’re stronger together and look forward to welcoming new farmer members as well as associate members to have a stronger voice in our community.


Not a Farmer?

Everybody eats! By supporting your local farmers you are helping shape the way your food gets to your table.

Join us for our monthly "Info Hour"!

“Info Hour” is a monthly video/teleconference on the second Tuesday of each month held on Zoom from 7:00-8:00pm. Hosted by Middlesex Local 312 and open to all.

Past Info Hours have covered topics like access to local abattoirs, grants and loans for farmers, and farmers markets. Upcoming Info Hours will cover topics like farm tax planning, agritourism, and more!
