Agriculture is the number one industry in North Carolina. By providing funds to NC 4-H and FFA, the Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina are working together to make sure tomorrow’s leaders in agriculture have a bright future. Join us as we work together to honor the contributions of these organizations and enable opportunities for young people in our rural communities.
