The Farm Bill Impacts All Americans

The farm bill’s impact extends beyond the farm by protecting our nation’s food supply – providing millions of jobs; ensuring access to nutrition for families facing hunger; protecting farms from risks like weather disasters; advancing conservation efforts; and spurring innovation through agricultural research.

Food Security

America’s public investment in agriculture through farm bill programs helps secure our domestic food supply and keep our country strong while we all benefit from high-quality, affordable food.

Farms in the United States


The food and agriculture industry supports more than 48 million U.S. jobs and contributes more than $1 trillion to U.S. gross domestic product.


Million Jobs Supported by Agriculture


The farm bill’s investment in ag research and conservation programs is foundational to farmers’ and ranchers’ sustainability achievements. Through these programs, farmers and ranchers continue to lead the way in environmental stewardship. Just 30 years ago, it would have taken 100 million more acres of farmland to match what U.S. farmers are growing today.

Risk Management

Managing risk on the farm is critical to keeping food on our tables. We all depend on the success of American agriculture, so it’s important for America’s farmers and ranchers to be supported by strong farm programs as they face weather disasters, high supply costs and inflationary pressures.
