An effective social media strategy is a critical component to any successful farm business.

This workshop will provide the guiding principles necessary for building sustainable connections through social media, regardless of the tools used. It will include an overview of the most popular tools currently available, an introduction to the guiding principles of social media marketing, easy steps that farmers can take to enhance interactions, and examples of effective posts.
