Over a century of service to our rural communities

SDFU - Our History | South Dakota Farmers Union - The Very First Convention

The work of South Dakota Farmers Union began in 1915, when farmers united to work together for the good of agricultural producers across the state.

Over the past century, Farmers Union has worked hard to preserve the family farm, save our rural way of life and protect future generations of farmers and ranchers.

We continue that work today — serving rural communities all across South Dakota by providing educational programs, cooperative support, rural development and legislative action on behalf of thousands of South Dakota farmers and ranchers. South Dakota Farmers Union is the leading voice in agriculture, standing up for landowner rights and the future of the rural communities that make up the backbone of our state.

Our educational programs teach the next generation the importance of cooperation, farm/ranch safety, civic responsibility, citizenship and environmental stewardship.

South Dakota Farmers Union is uniting farmers, ranchers and rural communities for a stronger South Dakota.
