Education

Reaching Out from Farm to City

Education and educating people about agriculture are priorities at the core of Farm Bureau’s mission. From Ag in the Classroom programs and materials for the K-12 classroom to college scholarships, safety education and M*A*S*H camps, education is part of our policy and important to our members.

At Farm Bureau, we believe that helping people learn and understand more about our state’s largest industry from the field to the table is important. After all, whether we live on a farm or in the city, a rural community or an urban center, agriculture is important to all of us.
