During the 2017/2018 legislative session, the
Massachusetts Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) experienced many successes on Beacon Hill. Often times those successes came as the result of collaboration with other like-minded organizations and with the efforts of members like you who took the time to make your voices heard.
