American Farm Bureau

The American Farm Bureau is the unified national voice of agriculture, working through their grassroots organization to enhance and strengthen the lives of rural Americans and to build strong, prosperous agricultural communities.

Women’s Leadership Committee

The Women’s Committee is involved in programs that include Leadership Development, Political Influence, Priority Issues, and Agricultural Education.

Young Farmer and Rancher Program

The objective of the Young Farmer & Rancher program is to provide leadership in building a more effective Farm Bureau to preserve our individual freedoms and expand our opportunities in agriculture. The program includes both men and women between the ages of 18-35.

Harvest for All

The American Farm Bureau Federation’s Young Farmer & Rancher are working with America’s Second Harvest to help feed the millions of Americans who face hunger. It’s America’s first harvesters helping American’s Second Harvest in what we call a “Harvest for All.”

Foundation for Agriculture – Agricultural Education Department

The American Farm Bureau added the Agricultural Education Department to the Foundation in 1998 to enhance the organization’s role as a national leader in teaching the public about agriculture.

Education About Agriculture

Educating about agriculture means providing people with an understanding of agriculture’s history, production, processing, marketing, distribution and nutritional aspects. “Agricultural literacy” is the term used for education about agriculture. This is different from education in agriculture, which refers to preparing individuals for careers in agriculture.

County Activities of Excellence

The purpose of the program is to recognize and share successful county Farm Bureau programs and activities. Fifteen county Farm Bureaus from across the nation will be selected to present a display of their winning activity during the Farm Bureau Showcase at the organization’s annual convention.

PAL – Partners in Agricultural Leadership

The curriculum is designed to be a high-level executive type that provides participants with unique opportunities to be “advocates for agriculture” – stepping forward and promoting awareness about issues important to those in the farm-to-consumer food chain.
