As of sometime early this morning, (September 7, 2019) this site is now secured by SSL encryption.  To the casual user, what changes is you see a locked padlock image on your browser immediately before the URL (, and the site is "https://.." instead of "http://..." but should not notice anything else. 

What this means is that your password is now entered over an encrypted connection, which makes it far less likely to be hacked/sniffed.

What this also means is that you can be confident that the site you are on IS indeed the "real" site. 

What this also means is that your information stored here such as name and address, e-mail address and phone number is not visible to anybody who doesn't need it.  Even legitimate logged in members only see your Name, State, Farm Name and a Contact link on the Members tab.  The "Contact" link will allow them to send you an e-mail at the address with which you signed up.  Phone numbers aren't even made available to other Members via this site.

What this also means is that development of payment capabilities is secure so that when you make a purchase of dues or fund raiser items here your credit/debit card information is secure.  This was a necessary background step in order to prepare the way for such development of this site.
