Federation of Jewish Farmers of America Convention Booklet, October 1909

Federation of Jewish Farmers of America Convention Booklet, October 1909

A convention booklet for the First Annual Convention of The Federation of Jewish Farmers of America held in October 1909. The seal depicts a plow used by pushing, usually pulled by a horse. The Federation of Jewish Farmers was formed in 1909 as a union of thirteen existing associations of Jewish farmers. In its first year, the organization held an agricultural fair during the week-long fall harvest holiday of Sukkot. In later years, the annual conventions offered farmers an opportunity to exhibit their products, and they continued to take place during Sukkot. The federation also gave Jewish farmers more purchasing power, starting a bureau to give liberal credit to farmers who needed more help, and offering good prices on seeds and farming implements to those who needed them.
