Pennsylvania Young Farmers is a group committed to education and promotion of environmentally appropriate production, marketing, and processing of food, feed and fiber. Our adult education in agriculture program provides individual and group organized instruction to agriculturists and consumer public in the local community. Specifically, the program is designed to assist those in production, agriculture, and agribusiness to become successfully established or to improve their current agricultural status. Also, an educational focus is to improve understanding and communication between the consumer public and the agricultural community regarding common concerns and issues.
"A Young Farmer is Any Farmer Willing to Learn"
From the President...
Membership is the lifeblood of our future and an important issue we need to focus on and ask each and every member to assist in making our organization stronger. I would like to encourage every member to recruit another member and recognize chapters for the largest membership gain. In the meantime, it´s important that your chapters return your membership rosters as soon as possible. As we visit chapters and events it´s evident that we need younger members joining our chapter ranks. We have added younger members to our board with two State FFA officers with a new one coming on each year, and our secretary, eastern region VP, and PR board members are past State FFA officers and future Ag. leaders. Therefore, our goal for 2013 should be to grow our membership, grow involvement, involve young members in our chapters and state activities to make our state Young Farmer program a stronger organization and voice. Our regional vice presidents are available to assist your chapters to become more involved in the state association, grow your membership and plan chapter educational growth.
Help is always within reach. Check the listing of state officers for telephone numbers and email addresses of your vice presidents and state officers on our web page.
Robert (Bob) Corman, President
