Social Media and Other Neat Online Marketing Tools —Training for Beginning Farmers and Ranchers

"Where does my food come from?"

Woman with TabletThis is a question many consumers today are asking themselves. Wouldn't it be great if farmers and ranchers could more directly answer this question?


Sure, you could invite a school group to your ranch or sell your goods at the farmers market on the weekend. But with online media, you can effectively encourage and sustain meaningful relationships with consumers.


That's where we come in. Whether you want to help more consumers find your products or hope to improve people's awareness and appreciation of farming and ranching, we are here to help.


Funded through a grant from the USDA, we developed daylong workshops that will be held in Georgia, Colorado and Texas. Any "beginning" farmer and rancher with less than 10 years in production of a crop, regardless of the operation, is welcome to attend.

At the end of the workshops, as well as with aid from the online training tools available on this website, you will be better equipped to develop an online presence in social media to grow and promote your business, or the agricultural industry as a whole.
