What is the Grange?
The Grange, also known as Patrons of Husbandry, is the world's only farm-based fraternal organization. Established in Washington, D.C., in 1867, as the lifelong dream of pioneer Minnesota farmer, Oliver Hudson Kelley. The National Grange consists of 3,600 community Granges in 37 states with more than 300,000 members. Washington State's first Grange was organized in 1873, near Walla Walla. Washington enjoys the distinction of having more Grangers than any other state - currently around 50,000 members.
