GEORGIA FARM BUREAU PROGRAMS
As Georgia’s largest and strongest voluntary agricultural organization, Farm Bureau Programs are an integral part of who we are. Our strong grassroots network of 158 county Farm Bureau organizations are composed of volunteers working to be the “Voice of Agriculture” and strengthen our rural communities.
From the beginning, Farm Bureau has been a family organization, with programs and activities designed to involve every member of the family. Many of these programs are specifically aimed at surfacing future leaders for the organization.
For young adults involved in agriculture, the GFB Young Farmer Program offers many opportunities to develop and improve your leadership, education and communication skills.
Our GFB Women's Leadership Program works to promote agriculture through education and participation.
The Ag In The Classroom Program encourages agricultural education by providing materials and guidance to teachers, as well as assisting in their implementation. It also increases awareness of career opportunities within the ag industry.
Each year, Georgia Farm Bureau awards scholarships to outstanding high school seniors who want to pursue an agriculture-related college degree. For more details and an application, visit our Scholarship page.
We also hold an essay contest open to middle schoolers across Georgia, and an art contest open to all high school students in the state. For entry forms and guidelines, visit the Essay Contest and Art Contest pages.
We also help promote agriculture at the most grass roots level to the consumer, by helping our farm markets promote their various products through our Certified Farm Market Program.
Nearly 100 markets across the state are part of the program, sell locally grown, farm-fresh products. Many of these markets offer agri-tourism activities as well.
You are encouraged to contact your local county Farm Bureau to find out how you can become a Farm Bureau volunteer. Farm Bureau encourages its members to get involved in their organization, by working to promote agriculture, build leadership skills, and recognize excellence.
