Inducted February 28, 2008
Created by farmers, led by farmers, and dedicated to serving farmers, the Alabama Farmers Federation first emerged from the Alabama soil in 1921. Its mission is to promote the economic, social, and educational interests of rural Alabamians.
By holding fast to the simple idea of strength through unity, the Alabama Farmers Federation has grown to become the state’s largest, most active, and most diversified farm organization. With more than 440,000 members statewide, the federation’s “one voice” delivers a powerful message, whether at the Statehouse in Montgomery or on Capitol Hill in Washington.
Through its commitment to be an integral part of the communities it serves, Alabama Farmers Federation and Alabama 4-H have forged strong ties for more than 50 years, working to strengthen farmers and their families.
As President Jerry Newby says, “Alfa Insurance and the Alabama Farmers Federation are proud to support 4-H’ers as they learn by doing. Our commitment to 4-H is our way to help 4-H fulfill its motto and we are proud to play a part in that.”
