The Nebraska FFA Foundation announced the launch of the second annual holiday gift guide.

This year, the guide features seven businesses operated by FFA members as part of their Supervised Agricultural Experience.

These businesses are either an entrepreneurship project for one FFA member or are a school-based enterprise where a group of FFA members operate the business.

The Nebraska FFA Foundation said these members are learning real-world business skills, including marketing, recordkeeping, and operations and production.

“The Holiday Gift Guide has become a highlight for me each year,” said Stacey Agnew, Nebraska FFA Foundation Executive Director. “It showcases a variety of skills that Nebraska FFA members have. I am proud of the hard work that these members are doing to learn to operate a business and hope many people will support them.”

This year’s featured businesses include live Christmas trees, home décor, houseplants, popcorn and caramel apples. To see the guide, click here.
