Membership is open to men, women, and children of ALL ages who are lineal descendants of a “farmer” living within the present boundaries of the United States between July 4, 1776 – December 31, 1900.
A "farmer" is a person engaged in varying capacities in the agricultural industry, including but not limited to farmer, rancher, farm hand, or person that owned a farm. The fact that an ancestor has another profession or occupation does not prevent that ancestor from being a “farmer” where requirements are met.
A census record citing the ancestor’s occupation as farmer is sufficient evidence of the definition of “farmer.”
Membership inquiries are welcome.
An invitation to apply may be extended by the President National.
The National Society Descendants of American Farmers does not to discriminate on any basis.
Charter Lifetime Membership is now available through November 30, 2019.
Regular Life Membership available on December 1, 2019.
About this Scholarship:
Our Heavenly Father, we give thanks today for our ancestral farmers.
Those that sowed the seeds, harvested the crops, and raised the animals, all to nourish a nation.
We seek guidance and the ability to help future generations of farmers; to teach, to guide, and to bless those as they continue to nurture us.
