Why Join ProFILE

Network

As part of ProFILE, you’ll engage with and learn from farmers in same stage of life as you. Michigan may be the second most agriculturally diverse state in the nation, but we’re a tight knit community, and ProFILE is another great example of that support network. 

Travel

The program also includes a Washington, D.C. experience and a week-long tour that exposes participants to agriculture and Farm Bureau activities in other states. Trips traditionally include stops at the American Farm Bureau Federation headquarters, food processors, marketing organizations, farms and infrastructure hubs throughout the Midwest.
