The Portage County Farm Bureau is a non-profit entity that works on behalf of the farmers.  We represent their interest at all levels of government as a voice for the farmer.  We also do lots of promoting and educating the consumer about the importance of our farmers.  We have lots of opportunities to building leadership and communication skills as well as having fun.  The Portage County Farm Bureau puts on an annual drive it yourself farm tour each September.  The intent of this event is to educate the public about what goes on at a farm.  They also provide scholarships for area youth that are attending college in an agricultural field.  The overall goal of the organization is to help the consumer better understand the practices that make up agriculture.  We want to show the consumer how we do it and that we do it with their and our best interest at heart.  We care for the food and animals we raise and take pride in offering a great locally grown product.
