Our Mission

Our mission is to “Promote agriculture through educational and informational programming to enhance the quality of life for our members, while preserving our agricultural heritage.”

The DuPage County Farm Bureau was formed in 1913 to serve and represent area farmers. Today it continues to be the leading “Voice of Agriculture†along with the Illinois Farm Bureau and the American Farm Bureau Federation. Over the years, our mission has evolved to include the education of consumers on agriculture. This ranges from teaching over 10,000 DuPage County students lessons on Ag to hosting educational outings. Some Farm Bureau services are directly related to farmers and farm owners who have a vested interest in the agricultural industry. Other services are directed toward improving the quality of life for both our Farmer and Urban Members.
