The Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS) is an agricultural organisation that is over 150 years old.

The Society is the secretariat for seven commodity groups representing over 500 farmers, with women comprising 30% of the total. BAS is the organiser of Barbados' premier agricultural exhibition, AGROFEST. In addition to agricultural produce, the event also features seminars, musical concerts and local cuisine.
