Foundation’s Mission: Ag Outreach & Education

Looking back on the 2019 year, it was another significant year for the DeKalb County Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture! Thanks to the generosity of so many donors the Foundation was successful in funding worthwhile agricultural initiatives like Ag in the Classroom, scholarships, farm field trips, ag literacy, and community outreach programs.
