National FFA Carhartt


The 2013-2014 Blue FFA Apparel & Gift Catalog will arrive in your chapter’s mailbox any day now.

This year’s catalog features a tribute to the “Year of the Farmer” along with a celebration of the 80th anniversary of the blue corduroy jacket. In a salute to the official blue jacket, we are introducing the FFA Carhartt jacket, a brand-new casual style that represents the same values as the blue corduroy jacket. Check it out at or look for it in the new Blue catalog.


Just as the blue corduroy jacket is a cherished symbol of the National FFA Organization, so is a Hard Rock Café collectible pin, one of that company’s signature items.

Through a licensing agreement with the National FFA Organization, Hard Rock Café will produce an FFA pin for the 86th National FFA Convention & Expo, and they will donate 15 percent of the pin’s total sales revenues to the National FFA Organization.

Make sure to stop by the Hard Rock Café in Louisville, Ky., during the national convention and expo to purchase your one-of-a-kind collectible pin honoring FFA.
