Women's Committee County Grants
Due March 1st and September 1st, the County Grants offer an opportunity for counties to apply for funds to provide an agriculture education experience in their respective county. The grants can cover any Farm Bureau sponsored activity relating to Agriculture In The Classroom, American Farm Bureau Foundation For Agriculture or other agriculture education sources. Grant application awards will be selected by the Utah Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership State Committee.

Our Food Link
Our Food Link is a year-round program that county and state Farm Bureaus can use to effectively reach consumers of all ages and backgrounds with information about today’s agriculture. This outreach is more important than ever because the average American is now at least three generations removed from the farm. In fact, farm and ranch families make up less than 2 percent of the U.S. population.
Throughout the year, Farm Bureau members help people connect with sources of clothing, food, shelter and energy in their communities. Activities range from outreach at supermarkets or farmers’ markets to hosting interactive booths at community events, speaking with lawmakers and neighbors about food or visiting a classroom to help students understand agricultural topics.

This toolkit is designed to help you start thinking about projects that will engage people in your community. Included are sample activity ideas, media outreach sample text, program graphics and plenty of room to customize Our Food Link to your area.
AFBF Women's Boot Camp
Women's Communications Boot Camp is an intensive training opportunity for any female Farm Bureau member interested in building skills needed to communicate about agriculture and Farm Bureau.

Fall session of Communications Boot Camp will be held in Washington, D.C. October 31-November 3, 2022. Participants will receive training on advocacy, public speaking, communicating with elected officials, social media strategy, targeted messaging and working with the media.Apply Now
