The FFA Creed

I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born

not of words but of deeds-achievements won by the

present and past generations of agriculturists; in the

promise of better days through better ways, even as the

better things we now enjoy have come to us from the

struggles of former years.

 

 

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to

be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as

well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts

of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those

associations which, even in hours of discouragement,

I cannot deny.

 

 

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect

from others.  I believe in my own ability to work

efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and

skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive

agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in

producing and marketing the product of our toil.

 

 

I believe in less dependence on begging and more

power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough

honest wealth to help make it so-for others as well as

myself; in less need for charity and more of it when

needed; in being happy myself and playing square with

those whose happiness depends on me.

 

 

I believe that American agriculture can and will hold

true to the best traditions of our national life and that I

can exert an influence in my home and community which

will stand solid for my part in the inspiring task.

 

 


 

The creed was written by E.M. Tiffany, and adopted at the
3rd National Convention of the FFA. It was revised at the

38th Convention and the 63rd Convention.
