2022 Theme: Family ~ Farming ~ UNITED
The theme for this year’s convention is “Family ~ Farming ~ UNITED.” It’s no secret that this year has held serious challenges for agriculture. But New Jersey farmers, and Farm Bureau members know that we are all stronger, and better able to handle those challenges when we all work together. We’d love to see photos of your farm operations that you think best exemplify this spirit of resilience and unity. Please send them to email@example.com and we’ll feature them throughout the convention.
