  2. 2. The beginning of FFA
  3. 3. The beginning of FFA The FFA (future-farmers of america) was founded in 1928. A handful of farmboys saw the importance of agriculture education. They got together and fleshed out the future for this soon-to-be organization that would soon educate young people on agriculture. But they could not for-see what it would soon come to be. Nowadays, the FFA teaches millions of students, (that’s alot). That fact itself is a big change from the handful that it started with.
