About Us

What Is the Grange?

The Grange (Patrons of Husbandry) is a fraternal family organization dedicated

to the betterment of the American way of life through community service, education,

legislation and fellowship. The Grange includes members of all ages and specifically

has programs for Juniors (ages 5-14), Youth (ages 14-23) and Young Adults (ages 23-35).

The Grange represents approximately 9,000 Pennsylvanians across the Commonwealth.

It is the oldest agricultural and rural advocacy organization of its kind in the United States.

The National Grange representing about 200,000 members, began in 1867 and the PA State

Grange was chartered in 1873.
