The Florida Farm Bureau Federation is the Sunshine State's largest general agricultural organization with more than 147,000 member-families representing Farm Bureaus in 60 counties.
Florida Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization founded by farmers to promote and protect the agricultural interests of farmers and ranchers engaged in production agriculture. Our farmers and ranchers provide an abundant supply of food and fiber with responsible stewardship of Florida’s natural resources.
Farm Bureau is organized on a county, state and national level. Members of Farm Bureau pay nominal annual county dues that entitle them to a wide array of benefits. Both farmers and non-farmers can be Farm Bureau members.
Farm Bureau policies and programs are developed from grassroots recommendations originating at the local county Farm Bureau level. From these recommendations, tentative policy resolutions are prepared and submitted to Florida Farm Bureau members at large for consideration at the state annual meeting.
Our mission is to increase the net income of farmers and ranchers, and to improve the quality of rural life.
Our vision is to truly be the most effective, influential and respected Farm Bureau in the nation and be recognized as Florida's Voice of Agriculture.
