Through the KFUF, Kansas Farmers Union brings important educational and networking opportunities to all Kansans.

Examples of this programming include Amazing Grazing,Kansas Beginning Farmers Coalition, Food Hubs and Co-ops, and our work with Farm Aid and the Farmer Veteran Coalition of Kansas. Much of the Foundation’s work is funded through grants from organizations and agencies like the CHS Foundation, USDA NIFA, the North Central Extension Risk Management Agency, and Farm Aid.
