About New York State Grange

    Interested in learning more about Grange?

A Grange display with personnel to answer questions and distribute literature will be at the following: 

Empire Farm Days in Seneca Falls from August 5-7, 2014.

 

       The New York State Grange was founded in 1873. There are more than 187 local Granges in New York State with a total membership of over 7,000. The State Grange has members serving on many state committees. The State Soil and Water Conservation Committee, the Council of Agricultural Organizations, the Rural Schools Association are a few. The State Grange meets each year in October to set legislative policy and legislative agenda. The 2014 session will be held in October 2014. The State Grange maintains a presence at the New York State Fair (8-21 - 9-1), at Empire Farm Days (Aug.5-7), and the Winter Farm Show in Syracuse.

 

          The Grange is primarily an organization for small rural communities. We are advocates for responsible government at all levels. We are a family organization emphasizing strong family ties as a basis for a healthy society. As a fraternal organization we feel that a strong community is based on developing a friendly positive relationship among its citizens. Helpful cooperation between members of a community makes it self-sufficient and prosperous. A community where citizens know each other and communicate on a regular basis will run smoothly and work for the total benefit of the community as a whole

 

          Membership in the Grange organization is available to anyone who is interested in participating in making better communities. The Grange began as an agricultural organization at a time when agriculture was the primary occupation of rural citizens. Today the Grange still closely mirrors the makeup of our rural communities. Agriculture is still important to the Grange and its members know that the economic welfare of rural communities is still strongly influenced by the economic stability of agriculture.
