Building a Sustainable Future

For our families and yours.

Farm Bureau is the leading voice of farmers in Washington, DC, and our work goes well beyond policy issues. We’re committed to engaging and developing the next generation of farm leaders, encouraging rural entrepreneurs, and giving back to our communities.

Grassroots Advocacy & Engagement

Active and engaged farmers and ranchers are the power behind the American Farm Bureau Federation. Our influence is unmatched when state and county Farm Bureaus and grassroots members unite with us to advocate for public policies that advance agriculture and strengthen rural communities. Their voices are also critical to telling agriculture’s story at a time when the public is more curious than ever about where their food comes from.

Since our founding in 1919, AFBF has been defined by a true grassroots policy development process. Every January, farmer and rancher delegates set AFBF’s formal policy agenda after deliberation on and anticipation of the challenges and opportunities facing agriculture in the coming year.

Member Development

AFBF provides intensive leadership development and effective outreach training, strengthening the ability of farmers and ranchers to connect with their communities and elected leaders.

Community Engagement and Enrichment

AFBF’s programs and initiatives enrich the rural communities where grassroots members live and work.

Farm Bureau Gives Back

The spirit of farm communities has always been one of working together and giving back. Across the Farm Bureau family, our members rise to meet the challenges facing their communities. Volunteers at the county, state and national level give time and resources to provide meals, help rebuild from disasters, and offer support to those in need.
