About Us

New York Farm Bureau Foundation for Agricultural Education, Inc. is a charitable education foundation. Our mission is to inform and educate all New Yorkers regarding agriculture and to increase understanding of agriculture and to increase understanding between the farm and non-farm public.

Our goal is to raise the level of public awareness and understanding about agriculture, which will serve to alleviate misunderstandings that can manifest themselves as legislative proposals, unnecessary upheaval within the food system, superfluous regulations, excess costs, and a breakdown within the infrastructure of our communities and state. An understanding will allow the general public to make “informed” choices.
