Voting is the most basic right of all Americans.  Will you join others in pledging to vote this election?  The issues in this election matter to the nation’s farmers and ranchers, rural Americans and all Americans.

Rural America is important to us all because our rural communities are the primary source for food production, affordable energy, clean drinking water and accessible outdoor recreation.

Take the pledge to vote in the 2018 election! 

Voter’s Guide

It’s not always easy to know who to vote for in election. As Maryland Farm Bureau members, we want candidates that are interested in protecting and preserving rural life.

Our Political Action Committee (PAC), using insight and advice from the county level, made 97 endorsements throughout the state for the upcoming General Election. Each of the endorsements are listed in our Voter’s Guide that was mailed to each of our members. Be sure to carry it with you to the polls, and use it as resource to ensure farmer-friendly candidates are elected.

Rural Road Safety

Rural road safety is more important than ever as we start the fall harvest. With 55% of the nation’s roadway fatalities occurring on rural roads, this is a major concern farmers face each year. 

Through the support of Governor Larry Hogan, Maryland Farm Bureau has been working with the State Highway Administration and the Maryland Department of Agriculture to carry out a farm road safety caution campaign to last through November.

Here is a video of MFB President Chuck Fry discussing rural road safety during harvest season.

MFB, MDA, and SHA held a press conference at MFB headquarters on Thursday, September 27th to kick-off the caution campaign. The event was recorded live on our Facebook page.

Here are some testimonies and claims of collisions related to farm equipment.

Farmers follow special practices to keep themselves and other drivers safe while on the road. Slow-moving vehicle signs are one of those practices intended only for farm equipment.
