The Georgia Young Farmer program is the adult education component of Georgia's Agricultural Education program.


Georgia Young Farmers AssociationThe Young Farmer Program began in 1951 and functioned as an instructional program coordinated by full time young farmer teachers. In 1971, the Georgia Young Farmers Association (GYFA) was organized as an extension of the instructional program. The purpose of the state association is for the coordination of state level activities and to provide leadership activities for members.


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.
