Fairfield County Farm Bureau, Inc. is one of the three oldest county farm bureaus in the U.S. Dedicated to raising awareness of agriculture in our 23 towns, we work through legislative advocacy, market promotion and education .

Fairfield County is home to more than 310 farms. Farm Bureau has part-time and full-time farm members who are involved in all aspects of production agriculture including greenhouse and nurseries, fruit-growing and wine production. Horses are our most plentiful livestock, but farmers here also raise beef cows, sheep, goats and dairy cows. Agritourism is a growing industry here, and consumers enjoy foods we produce like cheese and ice cream, plus Christmas trees, vegetables, pumpkins, honey, maple syrup and more. Our aquaculture industry leases more than 25,000 acres of Long Island Sound for shellfish production. (Source: 2008 Agricultural Statistics Service, USDA) We are also dedicated to conserving working farm lands and promoting the well-being of farmers, farm businesses, and the consumers they serve.

Major initiatives of Fairfield County Farm Bureau each year include funding 4-H, Future Farmers of America and the Fairfield County Extension Council with donations, and educational opportunities for farmers and agriculturally-minded consumers such as our "Grow Your Own " Conference each spring. We also host a legislative event each winter to help inform our representatives of the issues facing agriculture in our region.

With more than 400 Fairfield County Farm Bureau members, we have direct input to forming the policy of our statewide organization which is voted on at the annual meeting each fall. Joining Connecticut Farm Bureau and being active in Fairfield County Farm Bureau's local initiatives is the most effective way to influence the future of agriculture in our county.
