Farmers' Market

OUR HISTORY

Vinita FFA was chartered in 1950. FFA is a national youth organization that promotes agricultural education. The organization is far-reaching and not just “Plows and Cows”. Agriculture touches everyone’s life and it is a perfect arena for learning all types of life skills. Mrs. Carolyn Piguet, Vinita FFA Agricultural educator and advisor took charge of the program in the fall of 2010. Through the last few years, the Vinita FFA has transformed into a non-traditional program which centers around “Farm to Fork”, becoming a community-based, national winning organization. Farmer’s Market, Chapter gardens, catering and promotion of healthy, clean food is the driving force of the Vinita FFA chapter.

STUDENTS ARE OUR STRENGTH

The Vinita FFA chapter members are key components to this community, the nation as well as the world.  The skills they are learning will propel agriculture into the future and sustain the world.

What we do

The Vinita FFA is a group of young agriculturalists that is growing in knowledge, skills, and leadership through agricultural education.  We care about food and the growing and preparation of it.  We care about our community and our world and want to promote a positive influence for our part in that inspiring task.
