KFB's Education Mission
We understand that no gender, age or vocation should be avoided when educating about agriculture. The vast majority of Americans are several generations removed from the direct experience of farming. Our education outreach efforts encompass children to state legislators and all those in between. Through a variety of programs, tours, conferences and media, Kansas Farm Bureau impacts Kansas agriculture daily and improves the perception of agriculture.
