Highlighting Minnesota Agriculture
Agriculture reaches everyone.
Minnesota Farm Bureau leads the way in the state, connecting farmers to consumers to start conversations and build relationships. When everyone has an understanding of agriculture and its impact, we can all work together to secure its future.
- In 2021, counties gave back more than $20,000 and provided hundreds of pounds of food and other supplies to organizations in their communities, addressing the most critical needs in their areas.
- Our members hosted Breakfast on the Farm events throughout the year, welcoming over 15,000 attendees statewide to learn more about agriculture and connect directly with a farm.
- In 2021, over 110 volunteers participated in farm safety events, reaching over 2,000 youth and 200 adults with their messages.
- During the Minnesota State Fair, over 13,000 educational giveaways were distributed to Fairgoers, promoting agriculture awareness and the Minnesota Farm Bureau.
Through programs such as farm safety, community wellness, food awareness, and the Minnesota State Fair, our members and county Farm Bureaus promote agriculture education and engagement opportunities across the state. We also offer resources for our members and honor their years of farming with special programming.
