Community Investment

WE INVEST IN COMMUNITY INITIATIVES AND PARTNERSHIPS THAT ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE.

UFA was created by farmers, for farmers and built on the principle that we accomplish more when we work together. The same holds true today. Our decisions reflect the goals and values of our membership. Guided by our three focus areas - Educate, Engage and Enrich – this is exemplified in all of the community initiatives and partnerships that we are a part of.
