I have been working on a presentation that I will be giving to a county farm bureau group next week. I gave it the title Tell Your Story with the subtitle “You Are Your Own Reality Show”. The group will hear about how important it is for farmers to tell their story to combat all the attacks on agriculture one farm at a time. Farmers are the ones who need to tell their story. It cannot be left up to an organization or association. The public won’t give them a quick glance. But they will respect information coming from the producers mouth.People want to know how food is produced. They want to know how a farm operates. Thinking of this as a reality show, you’ll see people want the inside view. What is really going on. This is what everyone in the ag sector needs to capitalize on, making it personal.
I’ll go through all the websites that I have made, starting from our first basic blog to producing a podcast. And what I have learned in between. The group will build their own site like our farm’s website. They will make it their own with photos and information about their farms. By telling their story, farmers can put a face on agriculture and make it real for the consumer.
