History and Vision
The Ag Council was established in 1939 when several row crop farmers in East Arkansas decided it was necessary to pool their resources and work together to overcome challenging times and remain sustainable. Our founding members discovered themselves to be highly effective when working together on areas of common interest.
Today, we are an organization still committed to the common interests of our members. We are a strong voice that aims to shape the future for family farms and rural communities in Arkansas. We remain committed to telling our story and advocating on behalf of farmers and agriculture businesses so we can grow the economies of the communities around us.
The need for an organization like the Ag Council is constant.
We work to ensure that elected and appointed policy makers set policies that support a sustainable and profitable agriculture industry. We do this because it's vital to our members and critical to our state's economy.
Arkansas farmers need to produce, be profitable, and grow so they can provide the safe, abundant, and affordable supply of food and fiber that the world's growing population demands. We continue to be world leaders in efficient, and advanced precision farming, and we constantly strive to maintain that competitive edge.
We work for our members' benefit.
Every farmer cannot give their talent, but there is no excuse for not investing money to protect your interests. You never know just when help from an organization like this will be needed and needed badly. Experience has taught us that you can’t wait until war is declared to form and train an army.”
–Harvey R. Adams, Executive V.P. of the Agricultural Council of Arkansas in 1943.
