Farm Bureau Fans is an extension of Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance. Throughout the year, Farm Bureau Insurance offers an opportunity for everyone to win prizes in conjunction with our corporate partners. These prizes range from tickets to sporting events at colleges and universities across the state, to the outstanding concert lineup at Farm Bureau Live in Virginia Beach, to local events such as minor league baseball games, NASCAR at Richmond International Raceway, and the State Fair of Virginia.
We're proud to partner with a variety of businesses, organizations and colleges across the state. In evaluating sponsorship opportunities, we look for wholesome activities that Virginia families can enjoy. Virginia Farm Bureau is a membership organization which means you get special treatment. Our insurance division has won national awards for its personal attention and fast claims service, and our acquisition of Countryway Insurance Co., a property and casualty insurance company based in Syracuse, NY, expands our footprint farther.
The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation is an organization with more than 130,000 members. It is part of the American Farm Bureau Federation which boasts more than 5.5 million members in the United States and Puerto Rico. There are 88 county Farm Bureaus located throughout Virginia. County Farm Bureaus across the nation collectively form their respective state Farm Bureaus, and the state Farm Bureaus comprise the American Farm Bureau.
The organization works to support its members through legislative lobbying, leadership programs, commodity associations, rural health programs, products, insurance, marketing and other services. Farm Bureau is not a state agency. It is non-governmental, non-partisan and voluntary. It is wholly controlled by its membership dues.
