The purposes of the Fayette County Farm Bureau® Foundation are to provide educational opportunity for persons studying agricultural and related fields and to encourage, promote, and fund the design, development, and distribution of educational and instructional materials and programs to provide improved instruction about agriculture and it’s related fields.
The Fayette County Farm Bureau® Foundation has been determined to be a non-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code 501( c ) (3).
Through this program, children from kindergarten through sixth grade have gained a better understanding of where their food comes from and what is good nutrition.
