It is great to see so many farmers stepping up to the plate and using various forms of social Media. It is vital for farmers to reconnect with the consumers of their products. Over the last few decades the general public has lost a first hand knowledge of Agriculture. Farmers and Ranchers must now make the extra effort to reach out and put a face back on agriculture”.
There are quite a few farmers now using SM such as Twitter.Twitter is a micro blogging (140 spaces or less) SM site that can be a quick way to join the Social Media revolution without creating a blog. Some off the top of my head are:@dairydino @agleader @JeffFowle @TroyHadrick @FoodProvider @Chrischinn
Many Farmers now have blogs to help them explain how they farm. A blog is much more like a Diary or Journal than Twitter. Some that are maintained by Farmers are:Dino Giacomazzi Advocates for Ag Common sense Agriculture The Dairyman’s Blog
This is a relatively short list and by no means complete. If you start with these links you can find links to many other blogs and tweeters that are speaking out on behalf of Agriculture.
