The Vinita FFA blazes a new trail!
The Vinita FFA has been known for their innovative projects. Some of these projects include a farmers’ market, holiday market, a food truck and a successful catering service. Our programs have been an example to other FFA Chapters across the country. We are taking our next huge step and launching an e-commerce website. This endeavor is a major step toward teaching our students skills that will set them up for success in their future lives. Through this website they will learn about production, commerce, Internet marketing and what it takes to get goods into the hands of consumers. Because we are all about growing our community, the site features Oklahoma made products. Future plans are to sell some student-made products on the site right along with those made by our suppliers. Our students are incredibly talented and you are going to enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor. You will find only the highest quality products on our site and we will be handling the fulfillment of the products ourselves.
The site itself has two main purposes. One will be to educate the public about the Vinita FFA and its many facets. Visit the site to learn about our innovative projects and to see some of our future plans. We have some REALLY BIG things coming and you won’t want to miss them. (Shameless tease here!) The second purpose for this site is to sell products made by Oklahoma companies and by our students. It’s a full e-commerce site with a full shopping cart system that includes, secure payments by credit card and shipping to anywhere in the US.
Stay tuned to our Facebook page, as we will be making announcements about changes and improvements we make on our site. We can’t thank our community enough for their support over the years and we ask for your continued support for this project. Please help us to get the word out by sharing the site with your friends.
And now please enjoy our site.
