What we do

The NFU-NB continues to experience growth. More and more farmers are realizing that part of the solution is a strong farm organization that is willing to speak up for farmers and not be shy about it. The NFU has been on the forefront of speaking up for farmers on the farm income crisis, the loss of young farmers, poorly designed government programs that seldom benefit farmers, local food initiatives, payments for ecological goods and services and many other issues that are important to the future of farmers, our families and our communities.

NFU members believe that the problems facing farmers are common problems, and that farmers producing diverse products must work together to advance effective solutions. The NFU works toward the development of economic and social policies that will maintain the family farm as the primary food-producing unit in N.B.

The NFUNB communicates regularly with our members and the public through various means.
