Farm Credit Cottage Dedication at White Lake FFA Camp

June 24, 2024

The Farm Credit Associations of NC are excited to announce the completion and dedication of the Farm Credit Cottage at the historic North Carolina FFA Center at White Lake. This milestone marks a significant achievement in our ongoing commitment to supporting agricultural education and youth development initiatives across the state. 

In collaboration with AgSouth Farm Credit, the Farm Credit associations successfully raised over $750,000 through various fundraising endeavors, including the annual Pull for Youth events. These efforts enable AgSouth Farm Credit and AgCarolina Farm Credit to partner and contribute to organizations such as North Carolina FFA and North Carolina 4-H, empowering students with essential skills and opportunities for leadership, personal growth, and successful careers in agriculture. 

The Farm Credit Cottage serves as a testament to Farm Credit’s dedication to the next generation of agricultural leaders. Since 1928, the North Carolina FFA Center at White Lake has provided over 150,000 students with unforgettable experiences. Now, with the addition of the Farm Credit Cottage, FFA students and staff from across the state will have a modern and comfortable space for programs such as the State Leadership Conference, officer retreats, Wildlife Camp, and more. 

Farm Credit is thrilled to see the completion of the Farm Credit Cottage at the North Carolina FFA Center at White Lake. This project underscores their commitment to investing in the future of agriculture by providing students with the resources they need to succeed. AgCarolina Farm Credit and AgSouth Farm Credit look forward to seeing the positive impact this facility will have on the lives of young people in North Carolina.

The Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina express their gratitude to everyone who contributed to the realization of this project. Together, we will ensure a stronger and more vibrant future for agriculture in our state.
