NJ Young Farmer & Rancher Annual Meeting – Sunday, November 13, beginning at 10AM, at the Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village.

We have a nice program planned, that will include presentations on the challenges and opportunities of farming in New Jersey, a first-hand account of a Right to Farm case, Parliamentary Procedure, converting a farm operation to specialty crops, and how to communicate effectively with legislators, among other topics.

We hope you will join us on the 13th.  If you plan to attend, we need to hear from you, so we can give the hotel an accurate head count for lunch. Remember there is no cost to participants, for the meeting or lunch. Please RSVP by email njyoungfarmers@gmail.com, or by calling us at 609-393-7163.

Every four years, the American Farm Bureau Federation asks the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees to address the issues that concern farmers and ranchers the most. AFBF asked Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump the same questions.

Both candidates explained their positions on biotechnology, trade, immigration reform, regulatory reform, food safety and more.
