Who We Are
The mission of Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) is to ensure Minnesota’s agricultural vitality. MFBF amplifies its members’ voices through engagement, grassroots advocacy and agriculture awareness.
Minnesota Farm Bureau ensures the vitality of agriculture in Minnesota by working alongside our grassroots membership to amplify their voices and address the issues most important to them. Farm Bureau provides engagement opportunities for members to grow personally and professionally. We also serve as a trusted leader on agriculture issues working with elected officials and other leaders. In addition, Farm Bureau connects members directly with the public through educational programming and other collaborations.
When you join the Minnesota Farm Bureau, you join a tight-knit group of families who care about the land and each other. You receive unique leadership development events, opportunities to participate in agricultural education programming, exclusive access to policy decision makers at the local, state and national levels and so much more. Our reach and impact in Minnesota is widely felt, and helps ensure agriculture and rural communities will thrive for generations to come.
The first county Farm Bureau on record in Minnesota was organized in 1913. MFBF was officially founded in 1919 as a general farm organization of affiliated county Farm Bureaus. Within four months of its incorporation, MFBF joined the newly formed American Farm Bureau Federation, broadening its reach and impact on local, state and national levels.
