Strengthening agriculture and the lives of Kansans through advocacy, education and service.
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.

Our board serves to advocate for agriculturalists and all members of the community striving to strengthen rural America through service on a local level, a state level, and a national level. We are fortunate that Jackson County is a very active Farm Bureau Association, with members serving on the national level, the state level, and attending leadership courses.
With the strength of 30,000 voices, Kansas Farm Bureau unites farm members to speak out for the Kansas economy and rural living. When issues like the environment and taxation are raised by legislators threatening agriculturist’s rights, it's the grassroots leadership of the voices of Kansas Farm Bureau members that, through the strength of many, impacts outcomes in defense of our rural way of life.
The state’s largest farm organization’s goal is not only to protect and better agriculture, but also to reach the 98 percent of the population who are not connected to agriculture.
Kansas Farm Bureau, a non-profit advocacy organization was founded over a century ago and still strives to provide its members the tools they need to succeed. As the organization continues to evolve, members of all kinds, rural and urban together, represent a band, growing stronger as more members join.
Farm Bureau provides agriculturists a voice because together we are stronger than we are alone.
