To answer the question “What does Free State Agriculture do?” it is important to first understand who Free State Agriculture is:
Free State Agriculture (FSA) is every member who chooses to become involved in his local agricultural community by joining an active agricultural association. Local agricultural associations handle local affairs on behalf of their members and in accordance with the constitution of the Agricultural Association. It is at association level that the Rural Safety Plan is implemented, Fire Protection Associations’ (FPAs) ground level structures function together and where community projects such as infrastructure, municipal liaison etc. be handled. Agricultural associations are the glue that binds the agricultural community together at the grassroots level.
Commodity organizations also function at association level by compiling a commodity specific study group from members of the association who give feedback on their commodity at meetings.
Well-functioning and active agricultural associations are therefore the heartbeat of the whole of organized agriculture.
