Kansas Black Farmers Association

The Kansas Black Farmers Association (KBFA) was founded in 1999 by farmers of Nicodemus, Kansas, for mutual support and cooperative agricultural market development. Nicodemus, located in northwest Kansas, is the only remaining western town established by African Americans during the Reconstruction period following the Civil War. Today Nicodemus, a National Historic Site since 1996, represents the unique and valuable legacy of Black homesteaders' determination and ability to sustain themselves despite all the economic, environmental, social, and political odds.

 

KBFA's Mission:

Preserving Black land ownership, the farming legacy, and creating a sustainable future

The mission of the Kansas Black Farmers Association is to preserve the Kansas minority farmer legacy through education, promotion of the agricultural lifestyle and collective niche product development.

  • Goal 1. Build and strengthen KBFA into a sustainable organization
  • Goal 2. Promote and fortify the Nicodemus farming legacy
  • Goal 3. Provide and develop youth education
  • Goal 4. Promote KBFA through outreach activities
  • Goal 5. Develop products and marketing strategies
