Correspondence contained in this collection details the everyday activities and concerns of the North Carolina Farm Bureau. The earliest letters date back to 1947; however, the majority of the correspondence in this collection dates from the 1970s and 1980s. Letters from 1954 to 1966 were not acessioned with this collection, and all 1968 correspondence was reported missing by the Farm Bureau in October of 1985. Much of the correspondence includes letters from the president of the North Carolina Farm Bureau Federation to county chapters, individual members, and state polticians requesting support on a particular legislative issue. The series also contains a number of letters from other state farm bureaus and the American Farm Bureau Federation. Correspondence from the insurance, marketing, and service divisions are also included.

The three boxes in this series include speeches made by North Carolina Farm Bureau administrators at local and national Farm Bureau-sponsored events, as well as statements issued by the organization in reference to a certain legislative issue. The statements usually refer to national petitions and were read by a North Carolina Farm Bureau representative in Washington. Although some speeches and statements from the 1950s and 1960s are represented in this collection, documents from the 1970s and 1980s are dominant. Issues represented in this series range from local concerns over the dairy industry in North Carolina, to national legislation on tobacco and the taxation of cigarettes.

The series of Printed Materials is divided into subseries that represent the major divisions of the North Carolina Farm Bureau. For the North Carolina Farm Bureau Federation, the primary document circulated through the organization was its annual policies. Arranged chronologically, these policies document the resolutions adopted by the Farm Bureau at its annual meetings. Often times, these policies also reflect and approve national resolutions proposed by the American Farm Bureau Federation. The Federation subseries also includes miscellaneous propaganda pamphlets circulated by the organization. The next subseries lists the General Manager's Reports for the North Carolina Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company. Although the chronological list reveals several lapses, this subseries does contain all reports accessioned with the collection. Third, the printed materials circulated by the North Carolina Farm Bureau Service Company are dominated by price lists for Safemark products offered by the program. Finally, the subseries for the North Carolina Farm Bureau Women's Committee contains handbooks that reveal the goals and objectives of the group.

Financial Materials includes records of membership dues for each county. The bulk of these records detail statistics from 1940-1970. Several original ledgers and bank registers of the organization are also included in this series. These ledgers have been split into four main subgroups: payments, disbursements, income, and receipts. In the case of many ledgers, the organization kept several records for a particular year, hence the overlapping dates for many of the ledgers.

Historical Note

Organized in 1936 as a chapter of the American Farm Bureau, the North Carolina Farm Bureau was created to be a grassroots organization that would give farmers a unified voice on agricultural issues. Its Women's Committee was established in 1942. In 1953, the North Carolina Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company was established. Beginning in 1962, the North Carolina Farm Bureau pioneered creation of a group purchase program that was managed by the North Carolina Farm Bureau Service Company. The following year, the North Carolina Farm Bureau further expanded with the establishment of the North Carolina Farm Bureau Marketing Association. Because of the organization's involvement in legal and legislative matters, a Legal Foundation for the North Carolina Farm Bureau was created in 1983. In 1987, a Political Action Committee was also added. Educational programs of the Farm Bureau include the R. Flake Shaw Memorial Scholarship Fund, the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders, and "Agriculture in the Classroom."

During the height of the Great Depression, a group of North Carolina farmers traveled to Washington in order to seek a solution to their many economic problems. They became aware of a need for mass organization through which they could work together to solve some of their problems. After researching the farming organizations of the time, these farmers decided to create a North Carolina chapter of the American Farm Bureau.

On March 2, 1936, the first meeting of the North Carolina Farm Bureau was called to order by Chairman J. E. Winslow. Although this initial meeting was held in Greenville, North Carolina, the organization elected to establish its headquarters at 403 Evans Street in Greensboro. An original membership numbered slightly over 2,000 people and represented 24 counties in eastern North Carolina. At the time, membership dues were $2.00 per member. In July 1936, the North Carolina Farm Bureau held its first annual meeting in Raleigh on the campus of North Carolina State College. By the time of this meeting, membership had grown to 4,490 members from 30 counties.

Throughout the 1940s, membership in the North Carolina Farm Bureau continued to grow. By 1944, the organization had 30,000 members, thus fulfilling the quota set by the American Farm Bureau Federation. By the end of the decade, the North Carolina Farm Bureau led the South in membership statistics. Administrators also furthered participation by establishing a Women's Committee for the organization in 1942.

In 1953, the North Carolina Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company was established. The initial offering was limited to casualty lines. However, by the next year, members could receive life and annuity insurance through Southern Farm Bureau Life. Later additions to the insurance programs authorized fire lines and crop insurance. Later in the 1950s, the Farm Bureau elected to move its headquarters to Raleigh, where they inhabited the former Raleigh Times building.

Under the guidance of President B.C. Mangum, in 1962, the North Carolina Farm Bureau pioneered the creation of a group purchase program that would soon be adopted by other Farm Bureau chapters across the country. Managed by the newly-formed North Carolina Farm Bureau Service Company, this program offered a variety of Safemark products, including tires and batteries, to Bureau members at a substantial discount.

The following year, the North Carolina Farm Bureau furthered its expansion with the establishment of the North Carolina Farm Bureau Marketing Association. Involved in a number of commodity programs since its inception, the association provided farmers with the opportunity to strengthen both their marketing and bargaining powers. The initial focus of this sector was the hog market, however, markets for dairy products, broiler hens, and a variety of fruits and vegetables have also enjoyed success as a result of this program.

The 1970s proved to be another decade of growth for the Farm Bureau. The organization outgrew its initial Raleigh headquarters, and in 1971, moved to its current location on Glenwood Avenue. Later construction in 1980 and 1992 would even further expand this location. By 1974, membership had expanded to over 100,000 members.

Because of the organization's great involvement in legal and legislative matters, a Legal Foundation for the North Carolina Farm Bureau was created in 1983. In 1987, a Political Action Committee was also added. Recently, the Farm Bureau has established several programs that serve the educational needs of young people interested in a career in agriculture. Since 1958, the Farm Bureau has provided financial assistance to agriculture students through the R. Flake Shaw Memorial Scholarship Fund. In 1984, the North Carolina Farm Bureau, in conjunction with North Carolina State University, launched the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders, which offers high school students the opportunity to attend a summer seminar on the prospects of a career in agriculture. The organization also soon added an "Agriculture in the Classroom" program that integrates ag-related curriculum into traditional courses of study.
