Social media connect farmers with local customers

Group Picture of Conference

Glad that Social Media and Farming are connecting again, the recent conference that I attended in Nashville has been featured in USAToday.com here is a quote:

“Last week, the AgChat Foundation held a conference in downtown Nashville for farmers across the country — and spanning many farm types and sizes — to learn about improving social media skills. It’s the second conference held by the organization, and attendance doubled in size this year.”

Equine Agvocate

Why do I always end up with my eyes closed

Brainstorming some advocacy ideas

I recently attended an Agvocacy 2.0 (Agvocating for Agriculture using Social media) conference in Nashville. I had the pleasure to interview with Chuck Zimmerman of ZimmComm New Media, LLC about being an agvocate for the equine and farming industry using Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn as a platform to spread the word.

Here is all the information on the interview, click Here

Lessons Learned in Agri Marketing

I just came back from TN from the Agchat Foundation Conference called Agvocacy 2.0. It was a Social Media (SM) Training conference catered to Agricultural folks/farmers/ranchers, lessons include Blogging, Advanced Twitter/Facebook Tips, and Creating Impactful Images through Vblogging. Also, most importantly promoting Agvocacy! I really enjoyed meeting such amazing people who are making a difference in Agriculture and how food is brought to my plate.

Here I am brainstorming some ideas for my Blog with the tips learned at ACFC11:

Why do I always end up with my eyes closed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to say that I learned the most from John Blue (& Mace Thornton) from Truffle Media such as how to create better videos for your blog with great insightful tips that are perfect for people like myself who have a great attention to detail. Also, John had great suggestions on advanced twitter tools to keep me following more active users.

I really enjoyed both beginner and advanced blogging suggestions from Janice Person, Katie Pinke, and Ryan Goodman. Overall they mentioned that it is all about telling a story to your fans about your lifestyle: the good and the hectic moments. They also touched upon google analytics and the pro/cons of WordPress and Blogger.

I also learned great apps for my iPad/MacBook Pro from Chuck Zimmerman and we talked about how: It’s Great to Be a Florida Gator!

I wish I had more time to speak with Mindy Jo Montgomery who wanted to chat but was heading out of the conference.

Here is the group picture (with my eyes open!)

Horse, Cow Art, and More

Every once in a while, I come across someone unique on Twitter. I’m positive you will find this lady fascinating as well. Dr. Kathy Swift is a Dairy Veterinarian, a jewelry artist, owner of Cow Art and More, and a mother of three young boys. She was kind enough to donate a pendant of her newest horse-related collection to my blog. Her charms concentrate more in the dairy and the agriculture industry. Her website also has a hand-picked selection of other artist’s work that specialize in agricultural art. To view her distinct selection of jewelry and charms, art gallery website, or know more about her story, please visit her website. Click Here. To follow her on Facebook Click Here.
