• Web-based Career & Technical Education

Slater Farms is a fun, web-based computer applications simulation that teaches students what it's like to own, operate, and manage an agribusiness. In the simulation, students assume the role of a Microsoft Office Specialist to produce a variety of documents for Slater Farms, a third-generation family-owned fruit and vegetable farm located in Tifton, Georgia.

From managing agricultural crops, to writing the company's newsletter, students gain exposure to real-world agribusiness operational tasks. The main focus in this simulation is to expose students to the necessary work involved in running an agricultural business using the channels of distribution and marketing tools typical in the agricultural industry.
