Become a Farm Bureau Member Today
Champaign County educators and their students are impacted by agriculture every day. Agriculture is a major employer in the United States, providing the food for your table, clothes on your back, and shelter.
You might know of Farm Bureau through the Agriculture in the Classroom program. This program, funded by the Champaign County Farm Bureau Foundation, provides free resources for educators who teach grades PreK-12. Each month, the program reaches 1,500 students in classrooms in Champaign County. Students are taught the importance of agriculture through lessons such as growing soybeans, apples, and discovering where pizza comes from.
Besides educating today’s youth, the Champaign County Farm Bureau (CCFB) strives to assist families in agriculture by recognizing and responding to issues of concern while strengthening partnerships and improving farm family life for this and future generations. CCFB members take an active role with local legislative issues, stay connected to government officials, and several committees to promote agriculture issues such as road safety and farm safety. These programs make a difference in our county and state.
