The FFA (Future Farmers of America) at Diamond Fork is an agricultural class that leads students to a career path in farming and agriculture. Future Farmers of America was founded by a group of farmers in 1928, their original mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding the growing nation. Today they are still called Future Farmers of America, but the official name was changed to FFA in 1988. Today they have expanded to other areas in agriculture like biology, chemistry, veterinary, and engineering.

Our FFA organization is run by Mrs. Draper the animal science, horse management, and FFA teacher.  She is an amazing teacher that teaches and prepares us for the real outside world. The FFA class goes on field trips to stock shows and they do other fun activities regarding agriculture. Mrs. Draper makes learning fun and memorable.  Diamond Fork's FFA class is a great opportunity that allows anybody wanting a career in agriculture to build their skills.
