Who We Are

The Barbados Agricultural Society is an agricultural organisation, which is over 150 years old. It was established in 1845 by an Act of Parliament in Barbados and seeks to represent the interests of the agricultural sector in all relevant forums.

Our Commitment

The Barbados Agricultural Society is committed to demonstrating the symbiotic relationship between agriculture and other aspects of the national economy as well as shoring up the country’s food security through the delivery of homegrown food and by-products. It is also committed to educating Barbadians about the importance of growing their own food which yields considerable health, social and economic benefits.

Why Agrofest

Eating local and by extension buying local is the clarion cry of the Barbados Agricultural Society. Agrofest is a large and annual platform on which to fulfill that mandate. 

Get Involved

It is so easy! Attend the exhibition and become familiar with the many aspects of the agricultural industry which range from growing crops, to rearing animals, to the increasing use of artificial intelligence or AI on farms. If you are a new or experienced farmer and you want to become a member of the BAS email us at
