Since it was established in 1944, the Delaware Farm Bureau has become one of the strongest farm organizations in the First State. DFB is a non-profit and nongovernmental organization that serves as a unified voice for farmers in the State of Delaware.

Controlled by its members through the democratic process and financed through membership dues, this group of over 8,400 farm families and associate members help form a national organization that is over six million strong. These families are united for the purpose of preserving agriculture as an industry and way of life; Farm Bureau is their vehicle to accomplish this.

Delaware Farm Bureau is politically active, but nonpartisan.  On both the local and national front, Farm Bureau has defended agriculture against unreasonable taxes and regulations, threats to property rights and damaging misconceptions about farming.

Delaware Farm Bureau consists of its three counties:
