What is the Grange?

Founded in 1867, the National Grange is the oldest US rural community-service, family-oriented organization with a special interest in agriculture. Over the years, the Grange has evolved to incorporate the interests of rural, suburban and urban communities. Agricultural and legislative initiatives, education and communications access are just a few of the Grange's current areas of involvement. The organization has approximately 160,000 members in more than 2,100 local and state chapters nationwide.

The Connecticut State Grange has been an integral part of rural and non-rural communities across the state for over 125 years, with currently nearly 60 local Grange chapters in Connecticut.

Local Granges are committed to bettering their communities through service projects, legislative initiatives, and family orientated activities.
