American Farm Bureau

Farm Bureau is an independent, non governmental, voluntary organization governed by and representing farm and ranch families united for the purpose of analyzing their problems and formulating action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement and, thereby, to promote the national well being. Farm Bureau is local, county, state, national and international in its scope and influence and is non partisan, non sectarian and non secret in character. Farm Bureau is the voice of agricultural producers at all levels.

In 1919, a small group of farmers from 30 states gathered in Chicago and founded the American Farm Bureau Federation. Their goal is speaking for themselves through their own national organization. Farm Bureau soon became the voice of agriculture at the national level.

The purpose of Farm Bureau is to make the business of farming more profitable, and the community a better place to live. Farm Bureau should provide an organization in which members may secure the benefits of unified efforts in a way which could never be accomplished through individual effort. While issues and challenges have changed for America's farmers and ranchers over the past eight decades, the mission and goals of Farm Bureau have remained true to that spirit. The members have become more vocal in speaking out on issues of concern for the nation's farmers and ranchers.

The Farm Bureau's Programs are American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture which affiliate of the American Farm Bureau Federation established in 1967 to initiate and finance agricultural research and education. The American Farm Bureau added the Agricultural Education Department to the foundation in 1998 to enhance the organization's role as a national leader in teaching the public about agriculture.

In The Young Farmers and Ranchers program both men and women between the ages of 18-35. The objective of the Young Farmer & Rancher program is to provide leadership in building a more effective Farm Bureau to preserve our individual freedoms and expand our opportunities in agriculture. The goal of the conference and follow up information is to get teams of Farm Bureau leaders, state staff and local community leaders up to speed on the latest information related to pesticides and nutrient impacts on human health, water quality and soil biology.
The American Agricultural Insurance Company assists Farm Bureau insurance companies in achieving financial stability and growth through a long-term partnership based on mutual integrity and trust.
