South Dakota Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization representing 14,000 families across the state — the farmers and ranchers who care for the land that produces the crops and livestock, as well as families who care about their food and how it's produced.
SDFB has four categories of membership:
- Voting Members: farmers and ranchers, whether active or retired, or owners of land used for agricultural production
- Community Members: those who are interested in and supportive of agriculture, but do not derive their income from it
Student Members: open to full-time students ages 16-23.
"Student" may only be used if no policies are being issued on the account.
- Agri-Partner Connection Members: non SDFB voting members
The annual membership fee for Voting, Community and Agri-Partner Connection members is $60, or pay $165 for a three-year membership. The annual membership for Student members is $30.00. SDFB's outstanding Member Benefits offer values on everyday purchases that pay for the cost of your membership many times over!
Together we can make sure South Dakota's #1 industry — agriculture — remains strong and sustainable for generations to come.

"The main reason I joined Farm Bureau is that I see a future in agriculture, and I want it to be a strong future. We need to continue to provide a safe food source for America and the world, and I think Farm Bureau is on the right track."Lee Kopriva, Clark / Day County Farm Bureau, member since 2009
"I like Farm Bureau because it is like a family. It's one big family that is all watching out for each other, and watching out for agriculture in general."Cindy Foster, Davison / Hanson County Farm Bureau, member since 1987
