#Farm24 reaches record territory across social media

Previously the annual campaign has been predominantly Twitter-led, but this year’s event saw unprecedented activity on Instagram and TikTok, prompting a whole new status for the popular initiative and, importantly, reaching new audiences.

 

Kicking off at 5am on Thursday, August 6 and running until 5am on August 7, thousands of farmers from across the UK took to their social media channels to show the nation what is involved during a typical day of their farming life, using #Farm24.

 

As well as social media being abuzz with informative posts which gave viewers a taste of everyday life on the farm, farmers used their technological know-how to produce educational videos on farming practises, with some taking part in live Q&As with the public.

Supported by Morrisons, a number of celebrities also took to their platforms to endorse the campaign and Farmers Guardian, which launched the annual event six years ago, welcomed support from Sara Cox, Nigel Owens, Tom Watson, Liz Earle and a personal message from the Prime Minister.

 

Mr Johnson said: "This #Farm24 I want to thank the fantastic British farmers who work round the clock to put food on our tables. During a global pandemic, they have continued to work tirelessly to feed the nation. The food and farming sector will always have my support."

 

 

 

Ben Briggs, editor of Farmers Guardian, said: "The sheer scale and reach of 24 Hours in Farming is something which is always genuinely astonishing, with the farming community embracing #farm24 as their chance to show the world what they do.


"What was really striking about this year’s #farm24 was the vibrancy, positivity and confidence of the messages from farmers about the job they do and the pride they take in the industry.


"With a wider audience receptive to farming messages and keen to understand more, being on the front foot is crucial when it comes to communicating what makes our industry tick.


"It was therefore heartening that so many people from non-agricultural and rural backgrounds were eager to learn more from the plethora of farming communicators who made this year’s #farm24 such a resounding success."
