About GYFA - Program Goals and Objectives      
The Georgia Young Farmer program is the adult education component of Georgia's Agricultural Education program. County Young Farmer Programs conduct educational seminars on everything from agricultural technology to legislative issues affecting agriculture. The local advisor plays an instrumental role in providing these opportunities and assisting farmers in the community.

Georgia Young Farmer Teachers provide instruction through organized classes on everything from new farming techniques, risk management strategies, water management, and agricultural awareness to legislative issues affecting agriculture. Providing on-site technical assistance is a strong part of the program.


Membership in GYFA is open to anyone who is supportive of agriculture and agricultural education. The GYFA has 55 county associations and over 5,900 members. For 33 consecutive years, the GYFA has claimed the largest young farmer membership in the nation.

To become a member, please contact your local chapter. If you need direction to your local Young Farmer Program, please contact us for assistance.

Executive Committee      

The Georgia Young Farmers Executive Committee is made up of members from across the state.
