Sometimes our name throws people. Yes, Iowa Farm Bureau works for Iowa’s farm families, but our work reaches well beyond the farm – benefiting Iowans in all walks of life.
It’s always been that way, ever since Iowa Farm Bureau was started in 1918. Back then farmers, teachers, bankers, chamber of commerce officials, and other community leaders joined forces to support a way of life and an economic driver that benefited them all: agriculture.
Though a lot has changed over past century, we remain committed to the people, progress, and pride of Iowa. We cherish and represent the values Iowans embody: dedication to hard work, passion for the land, and character rooted in faith and family.
In 2018, Iowa Farm Bureau celebrates its centennial year! We remain a statewide, grassroots farm organization dedicated to our mission of creating a vibrant future for agriculture, farm families, and their communities. With 100 offices in 99 Iowa counties (Pottawattamie has two), we’re your neighbors, making it possible for us to reach, respond to, and advocate for you, wherever you live in Iowa. See how we’ve worked to strengthen Iowa and agriculture for an entire century!
