teacher-with-students

The Pennsylvania Friends of Agriculture Foundation was created in October of 1986 when a group of forward-thinking farmers and business leaders recognized the need to identify agricultural issues before they became  problems. The Foundation’s mission was and is the preservation and promotion of agriculture – the largest of the Commonwealth’s industries. Specifically, the Foundation seeks to:

  • Enlighten the public about farming and agriculture
  • Create educational programs  for children in middle and elementary schools who may have no other exposure to agriculture
  • Train teachers on agricultural concepts while helping them meet their own continuing education requirements
  • Support ag and preservation of the farm
  • Fund scholarships for postsecondary agricultural studies
  • Promote career opportunities in agriculture
“In fulfilling our mission, the Foundation connects with a diverse group of farmers, agribusinesses, non-agribusinesses, and consumers of the commodities provided by all Pennsylvania farmers. Through these relationships, we strive to attain our goals.”
