The American Forest Farming Association (AFFA)

The American Forest Farming Association (AFFA) is envisioned as the natural evolution of the Appalachian Beginning Forest Farmer Coalition (ABFFC), which is set to retire in 2024 after almost a decade of great work.


Our goal between now and then is to gather input and ideas. We intend to draft a professional and inclusive association and operational template that will be open to public comment. The AFFA will likely resemble other professional groups, with sub-committees focused on topics such as science and technology, external advocacy, and member services. There will also be unique programs, goals and regions.
