Farming is a 24-hour job and, with British farmers working tirelessly around-the-clock to produce the nation’s food and maintain our iconic countryside, #Farm24 is the chance for the public to take to social media and say thank you.
#Farm24 will highlight the industry’s hard work, passion and dedication, and it is an opportunity to hear first-hand from those in the field about what they do and why.
If you are a farm shop or produce your own food, why not take a photo of it and share it with the world? It could be cheese, ice cream or locally-made sausages, but whatever you are making, we want to know how it is made and why you love it.
Lots of grassroot farmers are using a variety of different social media platforms to pledge their support for all the wonderful work our British farmers do to feed our nation.
From tweeting, sharing, liking and posting their comments and photos of all things British farming is providing the stepping stone to make this year’s event even BIGGER and BETTER than last year.
With a record 114.2 million twitter impressions in 2018, lets aim to make 2019’s 24 Hours in Farming event bigger than ever before and really show that we back British farming!

We want to know more about a typical working day; producers may also be hosting visits, welcoming consumers, meeting with fellow professionals on-farm, attending meetings, trips or social gatherings.
Bring your posts to life
Including photos and short videos can bring posts to life. In general, they make posts far more appealing and, therefore, more likely to be read, commented on and shared among the general public.
Which platforms to use
You can take part on any social media platform, although Twitter or Facebook are the most popular channels on the day. Simply tag your post #Farm24. Throughout the day, Farmers Guardian will be encouraging engagement by commenting, sharing and collating posts into stories throughout the whole event.
Try to keep video clips to a maximum of one minute and filmed landscape (rather than portrait). Please post videos directly on social media platforms using #Farm24
