Why Join Long Island Farm Bureau?
What if I am not even a farmer?
Do you eat? Swim? Fish?
Some current, very pressing issues:
Sea Grant faces total elimination in the current budget. NOAA would be crippled. Scores of vital climate change studies and decades of bipartisan progress towards clean waters, safe practices, water quality monitoring and more are under fire.
There are a number of strong organizations that can and will carry important messages to members of our Federal, State and Local governments. Long Island / NYC's unique geography makes these cuts especially painful. This makes Long Island Farm Bureau membership especially vital right now.
LCO Founder Ian Wile is a sitting member of the Board of Directors of Long Island Farm Bureau, one of the more powerful policy influencing organizations in NY, representing the needs of all downstate agriculture. We continue to represent the the benefits of oyster farming to the Board, our community, environment and economy. We fight for attention among the greater Ag community and policies.
