About Us

Farm Bureau® is a membership organization which is governed by members who join through their local county Farm Bureau.  Illinois Farm Bureau® was founded in 1916 when a group of farmers met at the University of Illinois. They all felt their was a need to discuss a need for better education, better information, and more effective farming practices.  

Early in their existence, Farm Bureau® was involved in passing legislation and lobbying lawmakers about agricultural issues.  At this time, county Farm Bureaus provided a professional staff in locations across the state.

County Farm Bureaus such as Hancock County are still involved in legislative issues that deal with agriculture. Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization, therefore all policy developed at the Illinois Farm Bureau® level starts with members in the county, such as Hancock County.  Other programs have been added to ensure the message of agriculture's importance is maintained in the communities of Illinois.

Hancock County Farm Bureau's® mission is "Committed to promoting agriculture for our members and communities through leadership, involvement, and education."

We strive towards our mission through membership at our county level by providing quality programs commissioned by the HCFB Board of Directors.
