Kentucky Farm Bureau
2019 Agribusiness of the Year

Kentucky Farm Bureau is celebrating its centennial of service to Kentucky this year.


The group got its start in November 1919 when representatives from 35 counties met in Louisville to establish an advocacy organization for agriculture.


From that modest beginning, Farm Bureau has grown to become one of Kentucky’s premier civic organizations, and its business affiliate Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance now stands as the state’s largest property and casualty insurance company.
Farm Bureau’s member services extend to discount buying programs, college scholarships and a low cost online banking service, in addition to its respected lobbying efforts on behalf of farmers and agribusinesses.
