SEDAN FARM SUPPLY, RED BRAND, and SEDAN FFA

Red Brand, a fencing supply company, developed a very unique program several years ago that allows local companies to give back to our youth through Home Grown. Red Brand felt very strongly that today’s youth needed to be encouraged and nurtured in their pursuit of an agricultural oriented career beyond high school. They also knew that most schools would have a limited budget that was designated towards ag related programs. Red Brand recognized the prestige and opportunity that lies in the FFA organization. What better way to accomplish this mission than through the local community and school chapter of the FFA.
The Home Grown program allows a company to choose a local FFA chapter to receive a percentage of Red Brand sales through a local merchant. Whenever local ranchers and farmers purchase a Red Brand fencing product from Sedan Farm Supply, a portion of that purchase is donated back to our community to the Sedan FFA. Sedan Farm Supply had to choose which area FFA program that it wanted the proceeds to benefit. Since Sedan Farm Supply is proud of the local FFA chapter and believes in the future of our youth and agriculture, it was a very easy choice for this business to make.
Because of our area’s loyalty and support of a home town business, Sedan Farm Supply was able to make a substantial contribution to our local youth and ensure that agriculture will continue to be taught and supported in our school. The first line of the FFA Creed sums it up best, “We believe in the future of agriculture with a faith born not of words, but of deeds…”
