     Historical note 
 The Patrons of Husbandry is a national farmers' organization, founded originally for social and educational purposes, from which sprang the Granger movement, an effort by farmers of the 1860s and 1870s to correct economic abuses through cooperative enterprise and political action. Local units (called granges) became increasingly active politically as members sought legislative and judicial remedies for their economic plight. The national movement's political activity peaked in 1875, but the Patrons of Husbandry and its granges continue to support the political and economic goals of farmers and serve their original function as a social organization as well. The Church Hill Grange was founded in September 1873 and became noted locally for its stock sales.    
   
     Scope and Contents
