Sedgwick County Farm Bureau was organized in 1918. The promotional work for the organization of the SCFBAA was started by the members of the Farmers Institute and the Wichita Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the extension service of Kansas State College. The campaign was started in January 1918, and by June of that year, 279 charter members had been secured. Over the last 99 years, Sedgwick County Farm Bureau has developed programs and activities to promote agriculture and educate our membership, which has grown to over 11,000 members.
Kansas Farm Bureau was established In 1919. Almost 100 years later, this non-profit advocacy organization still strives to improve the lives of all Kansans. Kansas Farm Bureau stands up for its members through leadership development, agriculture education, legal defense, environmental advocacy, farm safety, risk management, rural development and international trade.
Our mission is to strengthen agriculture and the lives of Kansans through advocacy, education and service.
SCFBAA is one of 105 a county Farm Bureau organizations--one in each of Kansas’ 105 counties--and we are the grassroots organization in the state. County volunteers in Sedgwick county and across the state provide more than 5,000 hours of service in their communities annually.
Whether you live on or off the farm, it just makes sense to be a Farm Bureau member of Sedgwick County and Kansas.
