Susquehanna Wins Top Award
Susquehanna County Farm Bureau Top Award Winner at Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s 61st Annual Meeting
(Hershey) – The Susquehanna County Farm Bureau won five awards, including the prestigious “60 Years and Growing Award” during Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s Annual Meeting in Hershey. The 60 Years and Growing Award is the highest honor bestowed upon a county Farm Bureau among Pennsylvania’s 54 county Farm Bureaus.
Susquehanna County was also recognized for earning the Overall Achievement Award for county Farm Bureaus with up to 400 farmer members. The Award salutes a county Farm Bureau for its outstanding performance in the six program areas evaluated by Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB). In addition, Susquehanna County won President’s Award in the areas of Leadership Development, Policy Development and Implementation and County Board Organization.
All of our county Farm Bureaus did outstanding jobs this year, but the Susquehanna County Farm Bureau demonstrated the highest level of excellence in a wide variety of program areas, resulting in major accomplishments over the past year. Their achievements not only benefitted farmers, but also strengthened relationships with consumers and the local community,” said PFB President Carl T. Shaffer.
Hundreds of farmers from across the state attended Pennsylvania Farm Bureau’s 61st Annual Meeting at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center from November 14-16, to set policy for the statewide organization on issues affecting farm and rural families.

Susquehanna County farmer Pauline Fallon (pictured left) has been elected as a new member of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau (PFB) State Board of Directors. As a representative on the board, Fallon will serve on behalf of farmers in District 1, which is made up of farmers from the Lackawanna, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming County Farm Bureaus.
“I thought it was an opportunity to give a voice to agriculture from someone who lives it every day. Hopefully farmers from this district will feel comfortable in reaching out to me,” said Pauline Fallon.
Fallon, who is a fifth generation farmer, operates a 190-cow dairy farm with her husband Paul. The couple also raises their own replacement heifers and grows hay and corn for silage on their 550 acre farm. Fallon’s key duties on the farm include overseeing employees and taking care of the animals.
Fallon succeeds Dave Williams, who reached the tenure limit on the board. Fallon has been involved in Farm Bureau for years, recently serving as second vice president of the Susquehanna County Farm Bureau and as co-chair of the policy development committee.
Fallon was nominated by caucuses of county Farm Bureaus in the 1st district and approved by Farm Bureau voting delegates during PFB’s 61th Annual Meeting in Hershey earlier this month.
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is the state’s largest farm organization with a volunteer membership of more than 53,000 farm and rural families, representing farms of every size and commodity across Pennsylvania.
