• Farmers

    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.

     
  • Families

    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.

     
  • Food

    Minnesota farmers ensure safe food choices for families. As farmers, our job is to provide consumers with the highest quality and healthiest food possible. Growing and raising wholesome, safe food is our goal.

     

Welcome to the Minnesota Farm Bureau

 

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.

Luhman Wins Minnesota Farm Bureau Collegiate Discussion Meet

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) hosted the 10th annual Minnesota Collegiate Discussion Meet. The competition was held Thursday, November 20 as part of the 96th Annual MFBF Annual Meeting at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bloomington.

 

Undergraduate students from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities participated. Students participated in two rounds and a final and were judged on their basic knowledge of critical farm issues and their ability to exchange ideas and information in a setting aimed at cooperative problem solving. The contestants discussed two topics:

 

How would the condition of government-managed public lands change if they were managed privately? What are the pros and cons of government ownership of land versus private ownership?
How should our nation’s policies balance concerns about food insecurity against concerns about the safety or environmental impact of modern agricultural technologies? What role should farmers have in discussing and debating these issues in our society and with our lawmakers?
 

This year’s winner was Jared Luhman from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Jared is from Goodhue in Goodhue County. He is a senior majoring in agricultural education.

 

The state winner receives an all expense paid trip to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s (AFBF) Fusion Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, February 13-16, 2015 to participate in the national competition. The winner also receives a $250 scholarship from the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation sponsored by Gislason & Hunter.

 

Other finalists included Christine Reitsma of Sauk Centre and Rachael Rostad of Wanamingo.
