Who is Louisiana Farm Bureau

Our Purpose

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation is the state’s largest general farm organization representing farmers, ranchers and rural residents. We are a private, non-profit, non-governmental agency established in 1922 to bring a voice to agricultural issues.

Through a unified voice, the Farm Bureau speaks on behalf of farmers and ranchers at the local, state and national levels.

By garnering input from farmers and ranchers on specific issues, Farm Bureau attempts to influence legislation and regulations that will enable Louisiana and American agriculture to feed a growing world.

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation is part of the American Farm Bureau Federation, established in 1919, and is today the nation’s largest general farm and ranch organization. The Louisiana Farm Bureau has a membership of nearly 143,000 and includes farmers, ranchers, rural residents, landowners, agricultural lenders and others who have a vested interest in the future and prosperity of Louisiana agriculture.
