About The National Farmers Union

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.

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.
