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 340 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?
Our meetings typically last an hour and are very inviting for new members. We’ll review our minutes from the last meeting, discuss budget, upcoming events, and pressing issues. We’ll also invite anyone to bring forward new initiatives or events they think our chapter should be a part of to discuss as a team.
Join us August 24th from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Nith Valley Apiaries in New Hamburg. (1041 Christner Rd). There will be a farm tour from 10:30 – 11:30 at Pfenning’s Organic Farm next door, and tours of the apiary will start at 1:30 and run every 20 minutes. The pig roast runs from 12:00 till 2:00 p.m., and we will have Mapletons ice cream for dessert. The entire event is free. Members and non-members are welcome.
