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.

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) hosted “Leaderfest” on Friday, July 18 in the New Ulm area.
The young farmers toured Lola’s Restaurant, Christensen Farms, Frontier Labs and Schell’s Brewery. Following the tours, Representative Rod Hamilton from Christensen Family Farms shared his insight on leadership. The evening concluded with a grill out. The tour was sponsored in part by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association.
“The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers & Ranchers were excited to provide this leadership opportunity for young farmers from across the state to learn about agriculture in south central Minnesota,” said MFBF YF&R Chair Kelly Schmidt. “It was also a great opportunity to strengthen personal leadership skills which can be applied to our home communities.”
While in New Ulm, the MFBF YF&R Committee also met for their summer meeting on July 19.
