For over 90 years, the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation has been working to preserve, promote and strengthen American agriculture. This effort began in the beginning of the 20th century with the realization for the need of an effective voice in agriculture. The first county Farm Bureau on record in Minnesota was organized in 1913. On November 8, 1919, 24 county Farm Bureaus forming a combined membership of 16,457 statewide ratified the articles of incorporation.
The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation was officially born in November of 1919 as a general farm organization of affiliated county Farm Bureaus. Within four months of its incorporation, the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation joined the newly formed American Farm Bureau Federation. Today with 78 county Farm Bureaus and nearly 30,000 members the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation continues to follow the ideals of its creators by promoting the beliefs and policies of its members.
