Agriculture Future of America (AFA)

AFA's mission is to build bridges for young leaders to foster engagement and innovation in food and agriculture.

Founded in 1996 by R. Crosby Kemper and other agri-business leaders, AFA offers leader and career development training and community-based academic scholarships for college men and women pursuing a career in an agricultural-related field.

AFA men and women share the belief that the production, processing and distribution of food and fiber, with support for agriculture business services, are vital for our nation’s economy, both now and in the future. These men and women share three characteristics – they are talented, passionate and committed to a career in agriculture.

AFA’s success comes from its unique partnerships with rural communities, corporations, foundations, colleges, universities, and individuals that support academic development, leader development and career development. This network creates an atmosphere that stimulates the development of professionalism, intrapreneurialism and intellectualism – each a key factor in human capital development.


AFA's mission is to create partnerships that identify, encourage and support outstanding college men and women preparing for careers in the agriculture and food industry.
