Farmer’s Wifee: Following the best dairy farmers on Facebook

Published:

As someone who didn’t grow up on a farm, I completely understand how frustrating it can be trying to decide what to buy for your family. As you scroll through your favorite social media platform, your feed is most likely filled with countless articles and memes about how food is grown or raised.

Chances are, though, that the information being passed along isn’t exactly accurate. So if you don’t know a farmer personally or live near a farm, how do you get accurate information?

It’s simple, many farmers are taking to social media to tell their side of the story. They are opening up their barn doors to those who want to know what truly happens on their farm.

I recently shared some of my favorite dairy farmers to follow on Instagram. If Instagram isn’t your thing, make sure to follow along with some of my friends and fellow dairy farmers on Facebook:

AND last but certainly not least is the Facebook page of our national animal welfare program known as National Dairy F.A.R.M. Program. It highlights various farms throughout the U.S., as well as how the program works for farms like ours.

Speaking of our farm, don’t forget to keep up with our daily shenanigans on Facebook as well.

I think it’s safe to say that is a pretty good start if you are looking to learn more about today’s family dairy farms. If you have a dairy farm Facebook page, don’t be afraid to share it in the comment section.
