Washington Farm Bureau History

When asked the question, "What is Farm Bureau?", the first place to look is at the foundation of Farm Bureau – the grassroots.

Here are families -- more than 6.5 million member families strong nationally.

Here are productive, politically active people, speaking out on issues of concern to rural America.

Here then is Farm Bureau, a non-governmental organization that has been growing for almost a century.

Here are county Farm Bureaus -- more than 2,800 -- federated to form state Farm Bureaus, which in turn make up the American Farm Bureau Federation. Learn More »
