Thank A Farmer® does not engage in direct lobbying of individuals or governments. Instead TAF provides an educational environment which facilitates rational decision making on agricultural issues on a local basis. The economy in each state provides unique opportunities for Thank A Farmer® to tailor its message for the maximum benefit of members, agricultural communities and those who supply and serve them.
Thank A Farmer® needs your tax deductible donation to fulfill this mission. While members are the backbone of Thank A Farmer®, those who can contribute to a higher impact message will benefit themselves and all Thank A Farmer® associated entities.
