Jackson County Farm Bureau Assn. is a non-profit agricultural advocacy organized in 1917, managed by a board of directors. On October 21, 1919 after two years as an independent association, Jackson County, along with 37 other county Farm Bureaus, organized Kansas Farm Bureau Federation. The major concerns of the first permanent meeting in 1920 included how to get enough harvest hands to get in the crop the next year, how to lower railroad fares, and how to pursue increased efficiency by the Kansas Farm Bureau.
Through the years, Farm Bureau has been the leading voice on many issues, such as Rural Electrification Act, School District Equalization Act, Farm Machinery Tax Exemptions, Use Value Appraisal Legislation and Private Property Owners Rights.
Jackson County Farm Bureau continues today as a grassroots voice for agriculture and also actively particiapates and supports the local communities.
Our mission is to serve Farm Bureau members in Jackson County through advocacy and education and to meet their needs through programs, services and products.
