Rob Larew is president of the National Farmers Union (NFU), a grassroots organization that represents more than 220,000 family farmers and ranchers and rural communities across the Unites States. Before being elected to lead the organization at NFU’s 118th Anniversary Convention in 2020, Larew served as its Vice President of Public Policy and Communications.
Prior to joining NFU, Larew worked over 22 years in Congress and USDA crafting agriculture policy. Most recently he was the Staff Director of the House Committee on Agriculture where he oversaw the committee’s efforts during the 2008 and 2014 Farm Bills. He previously served as the Director of Congressional and Public Affairs at the Food Safety and Inspection Service at USDA and worked as an agricultural aide to former Rep. Collin Peterson and the late Sen. Paul Wellstone.
Larew splits his time between the family farm in Greenville, West Virginia, and the National Farmers Union office in Washington, D.C.
