Farm Foundation was created in 1933 by Alexander Legge, the president of International Harvester, and former Illinois Governor Frank Orren Lowden. The organization hosts conferences (both on its own and in conjunction with other entities, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture), publishes reports relating to the U.S. agricultural economy, and facilitates meetings between U.S. agribusiness leaders and their counterparts in other countries.
