  • Agriculture faces a wide range of complex challenges in the 21st century. At the state and federal level, no group more effectively communicates the needs of its membership than the Georgia Agribusiness Council. GAC dues are not a casual expense or contribution, but an investment in Georgia agriculture's future.

    Gary Black  Former Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture
  • Being a member of the Council has been one of our farm’s wisest investments. They keep us informed on legislative issues while helping solve challenges impacting the ag industry. One of the best benefits continues to be the relationships we have made and continue to make - both business and personal.

  • The Georgia Agribusiness Council created AgriTrust of Georgia to provide workers’ compensation insurance for agriculture when other carriers were getting out. My business has been in AgriTrust since 1994 and their friendly service, prompt claims management, and program stability really stands out.
