In 1965 the Farmers' Union and Co-operative Development Association proposed the formation of a committee to organize centennial projects for the agricultural community. In response to the proposal, the Alberta Federation of Agriculture established the Alberta Agricultural Centennial Committee. The Committee incorporated under the Societies Act on May 16, 1966 and operated in Edmonton, Alberta.
Objectives of the Committee included creating centennial projects for Alberta farmers and organizations. In pursuit of their objectives, the Committee promoted and organized farm beautification and highways projects. In addition, the Committee also contributed items to the Agriculture Hall of Fame. The Committee also sponsored publications related to the history of agriculture in Alberta, constructed a monument to farm pioneers in Red Deer, produced the film We Just Take it All for Granted, and sponsored a trip to Expo 67 (Montreal, Canada)
The Committee dissolved in 1969.
