  • The Agricultural Wheel was a cooperative alliance of farmers in the United States, which sprung up almost spontaneously in 1882. A major founding organizers of the Agricultural Wheel was W.W. Tedford an Arkansas farmer and school teacher. The Agricultural Wheel, like other farm protest organizations--the Southern Farmers' Alliance, the Louisiana Farmers' Union. and the Brothers of Freedom--the Agricultural Wheel had been formed to correct the injustices and oppressions done to the small farmers of the United States by merchants, grain elevators and the railroads. Centered largely in the state of Arkansas the Agricultural Wheel sought association with other farm protest organizations outside the state of Arkansas. Because of the identity of the goals of these various groups merger talks had begun as early as 1887 between these protest groups. Besides the similarity of their political goals the Agricultural Wheel and the other farm protest organization shared the same organizational structure. The Agricultural Wheel and the other farm protest organizations anticipating merger were organized on the basis of small clubs of farmers organized at the neighborhood level. Even organization at the county level had proved to be impractical. County level organization was too large and not "local enough." In the 1880s, small farmers rarely journeyed to the county seat of their home counties. The Agricultural Wheel continued to exist as a separate organization until 1889 when it merged with the National Farmers' Alliance to form the Farmers' and Laborers' Union of America. (en)
