Farm Bureau Membership Frequently Asked Questions


Is Farm Bureau just for farmers?

Anyone can join Farm Bureau. Minnesota Farm Bureau is working for Minnesota’s farmers, strengthening our rural communities, investing in Minnesota’s future and promoting quality health care. These efforts involve and benefit all Minnesotans. A Farm Bureau membership also includes discounts and other benefits that offer value to Minnesotans in all walks of life. Becoming a member is a simple, yet powerful, way to put your support squarely behind the wholesome farm families who grow and raise your food, fuel and fiber.

Isn't Farm Bureau an insurance company?

Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation is a grassroots advocacy organization. Farm Bureau Financial Services is a separate entity and is one of many valuable benefits available to Farm Bureau members.

Why should I be a Farm Bureau member?

Whether you are a Farm Bureau member or not, our work touches you in many ways. But as a member, you have an opportunity to reap much more. Farm Bureau benefits are as diverse as our membership, but we are committed to supporting and protecting the farm families that produce our food, fiber and energy.

We do that through our strong advocacy work at the local, state and national level on issues ranging from property taxes and school infrastructure to environmental regulations and renewable fuels. What matters to you, matters to us.

We also provide leadership opportunities for our members, including at the county and state level and involvement in the Young Farmers & Ranchers program.

Finally, members also have the opportunity to be involved in strengthening Farm Bureau's profile, engaging with people promoting Minnesota farmers, families and food.

A Farm Bureau membership also includes discounts and other benefits that offer value to Minnesotans in all walks of life.
