welcome

The Warren-Henderson Farm Bureau® is a non-profit, membership organization. We one of 96 other Illinois county Farm Bureaus which make up the Illinois Farm Bureau.  Each county Farm Bureau® is governed by their own board of directors consisting of farmer members. 

Farm Bureau was originally organized to promote the most permanent and profitable system of agriculture possible as well as the education, social and financial welfare of its members.  The organization has evolved into assisting farmers with legislative issues, providing leadership opportunities and educational programs, furnishing information on services and products and educating the general public about the agriculture industry.

We are a grassroots organization who takes direction from our members at the local level.  The policies of the Illinois Farm Bureau are a result of resolutions submitted from county Farm Bureau®s and adopted by the voting delegation of farmer members at the Illinois Farm Bureau® annual meeting.  We have both farmer (voting) members and non-farmer (associate, non-voting members).  Anyone 18 years or older can become a member. 

Warren-Henderson Farm Bureau®’s mission statement:
“To Promote and Support Agriculture and our Communities"
