If you farm, your family may join as a Farm Family Member. Every member of the farm family - including the farmer and their spouse and children, ages 14 to 21 - are full voting members of the Union. This structure recognizes that every family member contributes to the farm by working on it directly or indirectly through off-farm employment. Farm youth from ages 21 through 25 can buy a yearly youth membership. Non-farm youth can buy an associate membership.
If you are not a farmer and would like to support the NFU’s work, you may join as an Associate Member.

What is the NFU?
The National Farmers Union is a direct-membership voluntary organization made up of Canadian farm families who share common goals. It is the only farm organization incorporated through an Act of Parliament.
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 Canada.
