Why FFA Matters
Tennessee Farm Bureau family of companies is a proud supporter of Tennessee FFA and, after winning the bid for the state fair’s winning ham (proceeds supporting Tennessee FFA), wanted to continue generating excitement. So, we challenged FFA chapters across Tennessee to take a photo and post to social media embodying “Why is FFA vital to your community?” for a chance to win the ham.
McGavock FFA Chapter was the winner with their entry:
“Everyone eats, but not everyone has connections to production agriculture. FFA is vital to the Donelson community in Nashville because of our lack of farmland. By not only educating 150 students on our school farm, Raider Ranch, but also by hosting educational events open to the public, FFA educates an urban population about where their food comes from. While we may not reach every single citizen, we’re glad to play our part in keeping our community informed.”
