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 Purpose and Mission of Farm Bureau
Farm Bureau is an independent, voluntary organization of farm and ranch families united for the purpose of analyzing their problems and formulating action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity, social advancement and promote the national well-being. Farm Bureau is county, state, national and international in its scope and influence. Farm Bureau is nonpartisan, nonsectarian, nongovernmental and nonsecret in character. Farm Bureau strives to be the voice of agricultural producers at all levels.
The mission of Arkansas Farm Bureau is to:
- Advocate the interests of agriculture in the public arena;
- Disseminate information concerning the value and importance of agriculture; and
- Provide products and services which improve the quality of life for our members
The work of Arkansas Farm Bureau is conducted in county Farm Bureaus by 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.
