Board of Directors
Your Voice of Leadership
The Indiana Farm Bureau Board of Directors is made up of 13 leaders with agriculture "in their blood," representing all 92 counties in Indiana. They are passionate about making farmers successful.
The board is led by Randy Kron, a diverse farmer who grows corn, soybeans and wheat with his family in southwestern Indiana. Like many of our board members, Randy has built a legacy with Indiana Farm Bureau. Our board members may wear suits and ties on occasion, but make no mistake, they are hardworking members of Indiana agriculture who don’t mind getting their hands a little dirty.
