American farmers stand ready to meet the needs of the growing population and are dedicated to feeding you and your family. Products we use every day come from plants and animals cared for by America’s farmers.
Farming is a tradition that has been passed down for generations. Today’s farmers are committed to preserving and enhancing this tradition for generations to come. Farm Bureau is a strong voice because of families who join this organization and come together as a unified voice for agriculture.
Minnesota farmers ensure safe food choices for Minnesota families. As farmers, our job is to provide consumers with the highest quality, healthiest food possible. Growing and raising wholesome, safe food is our goal.
Farm Bureau is an organization guided and directed by our nearly 30,000 member families – teachers, farmers, community leaders, husbands, wives, parents and business owners. Each one is concerned about their children, families, communities and making Minnesota a great place to live and work.
We exist to serve members because we share the values they hold dear – hard work, love of community, passion for the land and belief rooted in faith and family. Our services, programs and benefits are rooted in the cause, concerns and needs that are important to our members based on their beliefs and values.

Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) encourages everyone to recognize every day as Earth Day.
“In agriculture, every day is Earth Day. April 22 is the day where we emphasize the importance of our natural resources and share agriculture’s story,” said MFBF President Kevin Paap. “As farmers, we pride ourselves in caring for our water, air, land and its resources. Conserving and protecting the earth for your children and ours is our top priority.”
“Today’s farmers produce food, fiber, feed and renewable fuel using techniques such as global positioning satellites and biotechnology,” said Paap. “The Minnesota Farm Bureau is proud of the dedication and hard work of our farmer and rancher members who care for our natural resources while producing a quality, safe food supply.”
“More than 1.1 million acres in the state are enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP),” said Paap. “Farmers are involved in numerous conservation efforts with the goal of protecting the environment and providing habitat for wildlife.”
