Welcome to Jo Daviess County Farm Bureau. We are leaders in a new era of agriculture promoting the value of agriculture and enhancing the quality of life while preserving our beauty and heritage.
In 1919, a small group of farmers representing 30 states gathered in Chicago and founded the American Farm Bureau Federation. Since that time, the Farm Bureau has done its best to advocate for and educate about agricultural issues such as the Right to Farm, Farmland Preservation and Environmental Regulations.
The Jo Daviess County Farm Bureau holds true to those values and would welcome your help in doing so.
