Our "Agriculture Makes Good Neighbors" Philosophy...

In keeping with our commitment to our community, Farmers West partners up with 4H and FFA youth leadership programs by sponsoring corrals for several students to raise cattle so they can experience hands-on what it feels like to farm. The corrals are located right next to our Gerbera growing facility!

Wilja Happé, the owner of Farmers West, feels very strongly about the youth keeping the agriculture spark alive and promotes farming and agriculture wherever she goes. She was very excited to be able to provide opportunities for these young people to learn and grow through agricultural experiences and positive mentorship.

Pictured here, is one of our Gerbera facility employees; Reina, with her son Jose, Olivia, and Max. They who are in both the 4H and the FFA programs, learning how to become responsible in farming.
Interestingly enough, our flowers were also appealing to the young steers, who took the time to smell them before going back to ...whatever it is young steers do.

4-H is a youth development and mentoring program, guiding young people to become responsible citizens, leading healthy and productive lives and discovering critical science-focused innovations. http://www.4-h.org

Future Farmers of America (FFA) is an inter-curricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. Founded in the late 1920's, the organization was formed when boys were losing interest in farms and moving to cities. Their mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. http://www.ffa.org
