The Great Divide
The Indiana Federation of Farmers' Association divides Indiana into 10 districts with one director per district, and establishes the organization’s founding principles:
- For mutual protection as any other class of workers and producers. To protect themselves against exploitation in the line of their products. In other words, to have the same standards of justice and fairness applied in the cost of producing and selling as any other class of producers.
- To promote farm home betterments and the general interest and welfare of farm communities.
- To preserve and extend their civil and religious institutions. They will stand for law and order.
