Remember back in high school when you were “interested” in someone and you had the feeling that they were also interested in you? Should you make the first move or should you wait for them to do so? Starting a conversation about farm transition planning is in many ways comparable.
Farm Credit East is committed to supporting the next generation of agriculture, commercial fishing and forest products industry leaders. As such, we launched a new scholarship program late last year for students involved in The National FFA Organization.
This Veteran’s Day, Farm Credit East joins all Americans in honoring those who have served our country in the military and is proud to support programs that assist these veterans interested in agricultural careers.
Educating the public about agriculture is important to Farm Credit East. Knowledgeable consumers who support agriculture are essential for the long-term strength of the Northeast agricultural, forest products and commercial fishing industries. At the same time, educating youth about agriculture is important to developing the next generation of ag business operators as well as future consumers.
