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.
Whether it’s small, continuous donations or an annual event that benefits a cause important to our organization, raising money for families and local community organization gives our staff a good feeling.
