Grassroots Leaders Guide Federation Growth For A Century
In its first century, the Alabama Farmers Federation was guided by 10 farmer-presidents — elected by their fellow farmers to serve rural Alabama.
Leaders of the group (originally named Alabama Farm Bureau) have diverse backgrounds, educational experiences and management styles.
Despite their differences, their missions were unified — improve, organize and advance life for Alabamians.
A Historical Timeline Of The Federation
Created a century ago, the Alabama Farmers Federation has experienced exponential growth in its first 100 years. It began with 17,000 Alabama families and has grown to nearly 340,000 today.
From the development of its political influence and creation of state commodity programs to founding a strong, multi-line insurance company, its mission remains the same.
The Federation is led by farmers and is dedicated to serving farmers by promoting the economic, social and educational interests of all Alabamians.
