When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it quickly became evident that it was going to have a tremendous impact on farmers. Some dairy farmers were dumping milk, some were making difficult decisions about planting, and others were left wondering if there would be a market for what they had already planted. Consumers were hearing about farmers dumping milk or plowing fields of produce under, but were also seeing empty shelves in the grocery store. People wondered why. So, the “Save Our Farms Save Our Food" campaign was launched to educate people about agriculture and introduce them to local farmers. We wanted to make sure people were aware that almost everything they come in contact with originates from agriculture and that it’s vitally important to support our local farmers! The campaign resulted in over 750,000 impressions just on social media. Many people donated to the SAVE OUR FARMS SAVE OUR FOOD campaign, receiving a T-Shirt, but more importantly showing farmers that we have your backs!
