The Federation has been successfully working since 1967 to provide Black farmers, landowners, and cooperatives in the Southern region with land retention assistance, cooperative development assistance, and advocacy.
The Federation's strengths are its structure and governance. We are a member-owned and operated organization born out of the Civil Rights Movement to do the unique work of empowering our members with racial and economic equity. Black farmer, landowner & cooperative ownership is a driving force behind all that we do.
