Keep America Growing

Agriculture is vital to a thriving America and growing world. The hard work of farmers and ranchers provide our nation and world with food and fiber. Agriculture is a risky and high-stakes business that requires good policies. That's where we come in.

We work across party lines, building strong relationships, to empower farmers, ranchers, and grassroots organizations to work for the policies that protect our food supply today and tomorrow.
We work with organizations to provide updates on current legislation and policies, give reports to board members, answer any questions, do research, and provide support.

For all gainful professions, nothing is better, nothing more pleasing, nothing more delightful, nothing better becomes a well-bred man than agriculture.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

It will not be doubted, that with reference either to individual, or National Welfare, Agriculture is of primary importance. In proportion as Nations advance in population, and other circumstances of maturity, this truth becomes more apparent; and renders the cultivation of the Soil more and more, an object of public patronage.

George Washington

The first farmer was the first man, and all historic nobility rests on possession and use of land.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The farm - best home of the family man - best source of national wealth - foundation of civilized society - the natural providence

Inscription in Union Station, Washington D.C.

When tillage begins other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.

Daniel Webster, 1840 - Inscribed in the U.S. Capitol

The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.

John F. Kennedy

Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to it’s liberty and interests by the most lasting bands.

Thomas Jefferson
