The Alaska Farm Bureau is an independent, grassroots organization that advocates for farm, ranch, greenhouse growers and gardeners. We work to protect the farmer and the consumer to ensure healthy and wholesome food is available for Alaskans. We promote policies that expand local farming opportunities, increase self-reliance, and secure the future of family farms.
We share in the vision of strength and vitality for our communities, families, our farms and agricultural businesses. Farm Bureau maintains an active focus on issues that improve the quality of our communities. Our strength stems from our members engaged at the grassroots level in your local Farm Bureau Chapters.
When you join your local Farm Bureau Chapter you also become a member of the Alaska Farm Bureau, which is a member of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
The American Farm Bureau movement got its official start in 1919 when a group met after harvest to form a structure to address the need for an organized and effective voice of agriculture. Today, the American Farm Bureau Federation is made up of all 50 states and Puerto Rico and is the largest and most effective farm advocacy organization in the nation.
The Alaska Farm Bureau is comprised of chapters in Fairbanks, Delta Junction, the Copper River Valley, the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, the Kenai Peninsula, and Kodiak Island. Some chapters meet every month and some meet quarterly. To find when and where your local chapter will be meeting next, contact the Alaska Farm Bureau Office at 907-252-5064 or send an e-mail to Amy.Seitz (at ) gmail.com.
