community is at the heart of every award

America’s Famers, sponsored by Bayer Fund, is a family of three community outreach programs that partner with farmers to make a positive impact in the communities where farmers live and work. Since 2010, our programs have awarded more than $57 million to nonprofits, schools and ag youth organizations across rural America. The three programs span a calendar year, and eligible farmers may participate in as many as they wish.
