Building Leaders

The future of American agriculture and rural communities lies in the hands of those involved. As our hometowns and the face of family farming change, we need to ensure that those involved in decision making understand and appreciate the role our communities play in the American economy and our society as a whole.

Our Fellows Program is centered on the need for strong leadership in agriculture and our rural communities. Join us in this exciting year-long journey that will positively impact your life, livelihood, and community for years to come.
