FFA Members Tour California Agriculture

46 current and former state FFA officers visited California to learn about the wide variety of agriculture the state has to offer.

Stops included the largest U.S. producer of caviar, a fourth-generation ranch practicing responsible carbon farming, and many others.

They also visited with California’s Secretary of Agriculture, Karen Ross, the vice-chair of California’s Water Board, and the vice president of state government affairs from Western Growers.

During the second week of the tour, the FFA members visited berry farms, nurseries, a horse ranch, and a feedlot.

The young people spoke with a wide variety of agricultural experts on the trip and learned about practices they could take home to their communities.
