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.

DuPont Pioneer is pleased to announce a $3,000 award to the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation to be used toward the development of a new Going and Growing interactive mobile learning application.
The new mobile app will complement the current Ag Cab Labs and My American Farm exhibits, which are visited by thousands every year. Individuals will be encouraged to download the app while visiting the exhibits, giving them and their families the opportunity to learn more about Minnesota agriculture while at home or driving to their favorite destinations.
“We are excited to collaborate with the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation on this innovative project to enhance learning opportunities about agriculture and farmers,” said DuPont Pioneer business director Patrick Yockey.
“We want to thank DuPont Pioneer for their support of this project,” said Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation director Ruth Meirick. “Our vision is to create an application that includes a library of crops grown and animals raised in Minnesota, along with different types of farming practices, all with the goal of stimulating learning about agriculture.”
Pioneer makes contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the business and employees. Consideration for outreach grants are given to communities where Pioneer representatives, employees and customers live and work and for efforts that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide.
