The Farm Bureau movement was started in 1911, by John Barron, a Cornell graduate. For over 100 years, farm bureaus have served the purpose of providing not only financial support but also advise for rural families. Some farm bureaus are independent of the original American Farm Bureau Federation.
The above business, located at 2800 Battleground Avenue, is part of a North Carolina non profit organization that started in 1953 and originally headquartered in Greensboro. Their mission is to provide affordable insurance to farmers, to advocate for their members, and to provide educational services to their members.* Today, the agency also serves non-farmers and they are the largest property and domestic insurance agency in North Carolina and they hold an A rating (reference).
The no-frills building on the east side of Battleground Avenue looks sturdy and inviting. We'll have to go see what the inside looks like sometime. Or, if you do business there, take a minute and let us know.
