You Can Be a Part!

Arkansas Farm Bureau connects those interested in food production with the farmers and ranchers who provide us with an abundance of Arkansas agricultural products.

Join more than 6,200,000 others in this unique organization that emphasizes the economic importance of agriculture in America. Created in 1910 to disseminate college research results to farmers, Farm Bureau grew up to be one of America's strongest lobbying organizations, with affiliated services and member benefits that include highly respected insurance companies.

Each county in the nation and Puerto Rico has a Farm Bureau organization. Those county groups belong to a state federation (Arkansas Farm Bureau), and the state federations to a national federation (American Farm Bureau). Each organization is autonomous, but all work smoothly together on behalf of farm and rural people.

These groups monitor government activity, promote new laws and regulations, initiate and support community activities, provide economic services, encourage fellowship within communities.

The work is done in the county Farm Bureaus by thousands of volunteer leaders serving on boards and committees and planning social outings, educational workshops, political action and community forums; encouraging agricultural education in public schools; writing policy that guides the organization’s lobbying and emphasizing the economic importance of agriculture.

County Farm Bureaus are as effective and powerful as members like you want them to be. There is always need for the enthusiastic member, as an out-in-front leader or a behind-the-scenes doer. Rewards are great, for the organization and for the individual. There is great satisfaction in working hand-in-hand with friends and neighbors and those who produce our food and fiber, while supporting the common cause of Arkansas agricultural products and services.
