Drawing a Picture of Agriculture
Lafayette County Farm Bureau and Madison County Farm Bureau recently sponsored poster contests for area elementary students. The competition is designed to help improve their awareness of how contemporary agriculture benefits them. Students are asked to draw a farm scene depicting agriculture. The top five posters from each county are selected by state judges and the student artists are honored in front of their peers, teachers and parents for their artwork.

  • Farm Bureau Works For You

    As a grassroots organization, Florida Farm Bureau serves our members. Our entire team of volunteer leaders and staff people carry out their responsibilities according to the overall direction set by you.

    We implement policies set at our state annual meeting. Our policies have been developed by county Farm Bureaus or our advisory committees.

    Some require discussion and debate over long periods of time because of their complexity. But
    we collectively decide on the best strategies to pursue.

    Florida Farm Bureau speaks as the Voice of Florida Agriculture on behalf of all farm producers, regardless of the commodities they raise or their scales of operation.
