Promoting Arkansas Agriculture
Formed in 1935, Arkansas Farm Bureau represents more than 190,000 member families around our state. We are a grassroots organization that advocates for and promotes agriculture throughout Arkansas, the region and the country.
We connect consumers with the farmers and ranchers who work hard every day to provide the world with food, fiber and shelter. We speak out on the issues that matter to farmers, ranchers and rural communities in the halls of government and we share the latest news, facts and stories about agriculture in Arkansas.
The American Farm Bureau was created in 1910 to disseminate college research results to farmers, and has since grown into one of America's strongest lobbying organizations, with 6 million members and 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 such as Arkansas Farm Bureau, and the state federations to the American Farm Bureau. Each organization is autonomous, but all work together on behalf of farmers, ranchers and rural people.
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 lobbying efforts and emphasizing the economic importance of agriculture.
There is great satisfaction in working hand-in-hand with friends and neighbors and those who produce our food, so we encourage you to join us in supporting Arkansas agricultural products and services.
