What is the Grange?

The origins of the Grange were based in agriculture; today the Grange focuses on serving local communities and also keeps true to its roots by promoting local agriculture and agricultural education. 

Local Granges donate to and support the projects of the State Grange. The Massachusetts State Grange partners with organizations such as 4-H, FFA, Massachusetts Agriculture in the Classroom, and the UMass Agriculture Learning Center.
