Why Join Farm Bureau?

AFBF is the unified national voice of agriculture working through our grassroots organizations to enhance and strengthen the lives of rural Americans and to build strong, prosperous agricultural communities.  With a membership of over 6 million families, Farm Bureau has a local presence throughout the nation. It pays to belong to Farm Bureau and support rural communities while receiving the economic benefits that come with membership.

Why is this important? 

Farmers and ranchers produce the food, fiber and shelter for Americans and for people around the world.  Although they are a small part of the population, the impact of what they produce spreads to every rural community, town and urban area in the nation.  Working together to support those who feed us is why it is important to be a member.

What is Farm Bureau?

As a membership organization, Farm Bureau is a member-controlled, grassroots, independent organization with programs created to benefit farmers and ranchers and rural communities. Farm Bureau is the Voice of Agriculture.

Farm Bureau advocates for farmers and ranchers and agricultural communities at every level – county, state, national and international.

Farm Bureau offers educational resources both to help farmers and ranchers become more productive and to engage students, teachers and consumers in developing an understanding of how food is produced.

Farm Bureau offers leadership development programs for all farmers and ranchers interested in developing leadership skills and serving both agriculture and their communities. 

Farm Bureau offers many economic benefits to its members through Farm Bureau Advantage.

How do I join Farm Bureau?

You can join Farm Bureau at the local (county or parish) level.  To obtain a membership application, contact one of the 2,800 county Farm Bureau offices across the nation.  You can also find information on membership through your state Farm Bureau.
