WASHINGTON STATE (JAN. 27, 2015) – Northwest Farmers Union (NWFU) had strong representation in recent weeks by both President Kent Wright and a bevy of members including Joy Beckerman and Lee Englehardt. NWFU was taking to the hill to testify on a number of bills that are up as well as working to strengthen bonds with legislative staff.


“We are strong in leaders within the Northwest Farmers Union,” said Wright. “Many of our members hold leadership positions within other organizations and therefore have a strong understanding of what it takes to create relationships and share our legislative priorities.”


The Northwest Farmers Union has taken on an invigorated approach to their region’s legislative work since forming under the leadership of President Wright. Proof lies in the flood of members attending legislative events in their respective states and many testifying on a number of important bills for the region’s agriculture producers.


“A great thing about our organization is that we are growing and with that growth comes a variety of members with a variety of strengths and knowledge. We are ready and willing to take on the issues of agriculture producers in the northwest,” states Wright.


The Northwest Farmers Union is an agriculture advocacy group that is taking on a variety of issues from Beef Checkoff and COOL to GMOs and Industrial Hemp throughout the states of Washington, Idaho and Oregon. Go to to learn how to get involved.
