People want to know where their food comes from, and Culver’s #FarmingFridays is dedicated to satisfying this hunger for knowledge. The popular social series is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers Project which has raised more than $2 million for agricultural education.
#FarmingFridays invites influencers from across the agricultural industry to share their stories on Culver’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. The series takes place on five Fridays spread throughout the year.
This year’s second #FarmingFridays guest is Katie Pratt who’s telling her story all day June 8 (don’t worry, you can catch it all later, too). Pratt is a fourth-generation Illinois family farmer and blogger who participates in agricultural literacy programs to teach kids about farming.
“Our guests love learning more about the agricultural industry and where their food comes from,” said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager at Culver’s. “Culver’s is proud to provide an avenue for those in the agricultural industry to share their stories through #FarmingFridays.”
Culver’s Thank You Farmers Project works to ensure that we continue to have enough food to feed our country’s growing population by supporting agricultural education programs that teach smart farming.
To date, the Thank You Farmers Project has raised nearly $2 million in support of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, local FFA chapters and a variety of local agricultural organizations. To learn more about the program and how to get involved, visit www.culvers.com/thankyoufarmersproject.
