See How Easily You Can Talk to An Arizona Farmer

December 10, 2009

farmerIt started simply because families want to visit with farmers. Most got the bug at today’s farmers’ markets. But many want to continue the conversation.

So, Arizona Farm Bureau’s online farmer/rancher directory, Fill Your Plate, launched an online forum called “Chat with a Farmer.”

Viewers to http://www.fillyourplate.org will now see a new tab in the upper left portion of the site called “Chat with a Farmer.” Once selected, viewers are put into a forum they can register for and have an opportunity to chat with Arizona farmers and ranchers. Topics will vary and the forum is set up for a regular exchange between producers and consumers.

“We’re very excited about this new feature on Fill Your Plate,” says Arizona Farm Bureau President Kevin Rogers, a valley farmer. “It’s one more way for farmers and consumers to connect.”

Rogers suggests it can even be used for ongoing contact. “You might have met one of your favorite farmers at a local Farmers’ Market, but for follow-up conversation, you can now connect with him online at Fill Your Plate’s Chat with a Farmer forum.”

He adds, “The changes to Fill Your Plate in general make the site much easier to use and navigate. It’s providing a wealth of information.”

    I love what you are doing with the talk to a farmer concept in Arizona. It is a great use of social media. If you know any farmers who would like to get their own free blog, they can sign up for one on http://www.FarmConnect.net.

    Best regards,
