Celebrating  Heritage

We develop, support and promote programs to explain the importance of agriculture and boost more participation.

We wouldn’t be the heartland without a little dirt on our boots. Nebraska’s agriculture is some of the best in the country and the Aksarben Foundation works to promote and develop this agriculture through a variety of programs.
