Alcona FFA Chapter


The Alcona FFA Chapter was established in 1935 and is a student leadership organization that develops students premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. FFA Members are actively involved in the Alcona Community Schools Agriscience program where they learn about agriculture and natural resources topics.

Every fall students in the Agriscience program raise pastured chickens that are available for sale to the public. In the spring, students are actively engaged in our Maple Syrup production operation, where we produce maple syrup right on our school's property that can be found for sale in our High School Office. Our facility for Maple Syrup production and chicken processing is licensed and inspected by MDARD (Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development) and is unique in its Log Cabin design; tours of our facility are available, but need to be scheduled beforehand.

In addition to chickens and maple syrup we also operate a vegetable garden that is used for educational purposes and as a community resource.
