By taking part in 24 Hours in Farming, you will get the chance to win 24 prizes throughout the campaign.
With less than two weeks to go, many in the farming industry have already made a firm commitment to taking part in 24 Hours in Farming.
From 5am on August 10 until 5am on August 11, Farmers Guardian, sponsored by Morrisons, will be running the agricultural industry’s biggest online event.
It gives anyone working within agriculture the chance to showcase the work they do by sharing posts, pictures and videos about how they spend a typical day. The purpose of the event is to educate consumers about where their food comes from and how much passion and dedication goes into producing it.
Anyone can take part and all contributions are welcome. As a thank you and to give you some ideas of the sorts of things you can post, this year we are giving away 24 prizes for the best and most dedicated contributions throughout the 24 hours.
For more information on how to get involved, help and advice for using social media and to see videos of some of the producers taking part, visit www.24hoursinfarming.co.uk
Taking part is easy and we would like as many people as possible working within agriculture to get involved.
Simply post about the work you are doing on the day from your own accounts on any of the following social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or Pinterest.
Just remember to use #Farm24 in all your posts so we can find them. You can post as many times throughout the day as you like and from as many different platforms as you like.
We are also encouraging farmers and those working within the industry to get involved in person by:
Here is why many in the industry have already pledged to support 24 Hours in Farming:
"Quicke’s is really happy to take part in 24 Hours in Farming. It is so important to connect everyone to food and farming. How better than to show our cows grazing, producing fabulous cheese and showing how everyone can enjoy it?"
"We are delighted to be championing #Farm24, a day in honour of hard working British farmers who are world-leading in terms of quality and welfare. #Farm24 is a magnificent campaign which brings together the British farming community. Together we can make the world learn how great our farming industry is."
"The reason we are getting involved with 24 Hours in Farming is our commitment and passion to promote our strawberries and blackberries, which are fresh locally grown produce we believe consumers would prefer to purchase. We are very happy to present our operation from ‘field to store’ to encourage a greater understanding of where food comes from and how it is produced."
"We are looking forward to taking part in #Farm24 as we do not think people realise how hard farmers work to improve their cattle and sheep and how much farming means to them. By taking part we can share with our farming friends and non-farming friends how much we enjoy it and how passionate we are about it."
"Morrisons is British farming’s biggest customer, working with more than 3,200 farmers and growers. We are supporting 24 Hours in Farming to showcase the wonderful work they do."
