Samoa Farmers Association started in 2006 as the Samoa Crops Cooperation Association (SCCA). The name of the association was recently changed to Samoa Farmers Association to more correctly reflect the organization’s membership and farming interests. Today SFA has a membership of 1419 registered individual farmers and 20 farmer groups with a total membership of over 700 farming families.
