100 Years of Tennessee Farm Bureau

This year marks 100 years since a group of farmers created the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation with the desire to provide a better way of life for farmers and rural people of Tennessee. Our organization stands strong today as the largest Farm Bureau in the nation, serving more than 680,000 members, and still serving the same purpose 100 years later. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the foresight of our forefathers, but also our dedicated volunteer leaders, employees, partners and so many others.

When the Tennessee Farm Bureau began in July of 1921, the membership was small and the services the organization offered were few. The organization has grown into more than 679,000 members. Read more.
