Biographical/Historical Note

The American Farm Bureau Federation had its start with farmers organizing in the late 1800s, with the federation itself being formally established by 1911. The Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation was incorporated 20 years later in 1931, and formally established in 1935 with James Feagin Tompkins as the state branch’s first president. By 1936, the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation had over 8,000 members and had made its mission to advocate for the rights of farmers and agriculture interests. Today, the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation’s mission focuses on advocating for agricultural interests, disseminating information on the value and importance of agriculture, and providing the federation's members quality of life-improving products and services.
