Why Join this Society?
We love this society because we feel an extra kinship with our farmer ancestors. They gave their all working the lands getting the most they could out of every square inch of soil.
They were able to bring forth their best which has shown in our country. Our farmers were the essence of America and they are a huge part of making this land of plenty happen. They have never been recognized and they 100% deserve recognition.
Our ancestors would be grateful that we are helping others by giving scholarships to those who will be walking in their footsteps as future farmers. We know with these scholarships we will help make life better for these students and thus for our country.
