Ohio FFA Emblem


Fruit Sales

A major fundraising activity for many FFA chapters is the fruit sales program. Over the years this program has expanded to include many companion products. Each year a donation per case or box of product is contributed to the Ohio FFA Foundation. The proceeds benefit special projects of the Ohio FFA Foundation. The 2017 FFA Fruit Sale begins October 12, 2017 statewide.

NO statewide minimum pricing! This year there will be NO statewide minimum pricing for the fruit sale. The practice of setting a minimum price is no longer relevant to either the FFA chapters or the vendors. This will hopefully eliminate some confusion amongst newer teachers. We strongly recommend teachers work with neighboring schools to set their own pricing.

  • Please use approved suppliers listed below. These suppliers have agreed to a rebate to the Ohio FFA Foundation to fund student activities and awards. Suppliers NOT on this list have no obligation to support the Ohio FFA Foundation, which in turn, supports you.
  • All orders must be made directly with your supplier.
  • Work with your supplier on any specific procedures and problem.
  • Pay your invoice on time.
