Who We Are

"Future Farmers of America” was founded by a group of young farmers back in 1928. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. The Louisiana Association of FFA was chartered one year later in 1930. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting– it’s a science, it’s a business and it’s an art.

What Does FFA Stand For?

The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America; however, in 1988 the official name of the organization was changed from “Future Farmers of America” to “The National FFA Organization” to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture.
