Are you a farmer? Does your business or organization support farmers or play a role in getting Vermont foods from the farm to the table?
Then you’re invited to #Farm24VT! Here you’ll find all the tools and resources you need to participate.
Step 1: Take the Pledge to #Farm24VT
#Farm24VT is set to begin at 5:00 am on May 12 and run through 5:00 am on May 13. Throughout this 24-hour period, farmers and others in the agricultural sector just like you will be sharing photos, videos, and stories showing the passion, commitment, and hard work that goes into producing food and other farm products in Vermont.
Step 2: Share Your Pledge
Let the world know that you’re planning to #Farm24VT–and help us spread the word that it’s happening! Download + print our selfie template , snap a photo, and post it to your social media accounts with the hashtag #Farm24VT. (Not on social media yet? No worries! Post your selfie when you’re up and running.)
Step 3: Get Social with Us
Let’s stay in touch! Follow us on
Step 4: Join Our Facebook Support Group
We’ve created a private group on Facebook especially for members of the Vermont ag community who have registered to participate in #Farm24VT. It is a place to ask questions, share ideas, and connect with others.
Step 5: Register for a Workshop
Because farmers and agribusinesses have a wide range of experience when it comes to social media, we are teaming up with our friends at New England Dairy to offer a series of workshops to help you learn how to use these tools. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned user of social media, there will be something for everyone!
Step 6: Download Our Toolkit
Download our social media toolkit, just for #Farm24VT participants! It’s filled with steps you can take to get ready for the big day, post ideas, social media quick tips, facts about Vermont food and farming, and–for those of you who like to plan ahead–a worksheet you can use to map out your posts for the day.
