Welcome to the Rockford Grange #501
At Rockford Grange #501 we are committed to supporting our local agriculture community and small farms. We promote our local farmers with such events as Fill Your Pantry and Crop Talks. Check out our events page for more information and these and our other events.
Our historic grange building is the space that brings us together. It is a place for us to hold our meetings and share food, laughs, and stories. It also allows us to offer an affordable space for public use such as classes, weddings, quinceañeras, and other special events. For more information on our rentals click below.
The people are what makes our grange so special. We welcome people from all walks of life. You don't have to be a farmer to be a grange member. We are looking for folks who are community minded. As a member you are offered members only benefits through the National Grange Organization as well as benefits that are just for our local Rockford Grange members such as discounted venue rentals. We also offer a Junior Grange program for children ages 5-14. For more information on becoming a member click the button below.
