Future Farmers & 4-H

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. They taught us that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting—it’s a science, it’s a business and it’s an art. FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways.

The Sonoma County 4-H program has provided quality “learn-by-doing” education to help young people develop life skills for over 75 years. Many of the county’s bankers, lawyers, business executives and civic leaders credit 4-H for their early training and leadership. Additionally, many Sonoma County farmers trace their agricultural beginnings to 4-H club work.

We support the Healdsburg chapter of FFA and 4-H by participating in their annual Fair and Livestock Auction.
