About the Mercer County Farm Bureau Foundation

The Foundation was established in 2009 to support the agricultural education efforts in Mercer County. The Mercer County Farm Bureau Foundation is a 501(c)3, so any gifts to our Foundation are tax deductible. The Mercer County Farm Bureau Foundation is committed to assuring agriculture's future by funding quality agricultural programs.

Ag in the Classroom

During the 2016-2017 school year, over 15 volunteers gave monthly classroom presentations to the over 200 second graders in Mercer County. The end of the school year is capped off with the Agriculture, Conservation, and Environment (ACE) Camp in May. Over 200 second graders have the opportunity to rotate through a series of stations to experience agriculture firsthand!

The seven indivividuals awarded with scholarships in 2018 are Nicholas Close, Andrew Boruff, Brandi Welch, Gage Hank, Matt Lloyd, Elijah Olin, and Brynn Bergen.
