As 24 hours in farming kicks off, Farmers Guardian has been inundated with streams of #Farm24 goodness from social media and key players in the industry.
The 24 hour event will see farmers across the UK interact with social media to tell their farming story through posts, images and video.
Charlotte Smith, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today, BBC 1’s Countryfile and president of NFYFC, said she was excited to get involved.
“It is a great and fascinating 24 hours reflecting the reality of farming across the British countryside. An opportunity to show it like it is - and inspire both the next generation of farmers and consumers.”
Welsh farmer Gareth Wyn Jones championed the day and said it was a great way to bridge the gap between farmer and consumer.
“It is amazing because for us #Farm24 helps connect with the consumer and the customer and make them more aware of farming.”

Farming Minister George Eustice added: “I spent ten years working in the farming industry and I am truly passionate about helping farmers thrive. Leaving the EU gives us the chance to develop a fresh approach and over the last year I have been meeting farmers up and down the country to discuss what the future might look like.
“I firmly believe the future of our food and farming industry is a bright one and that is why I am proud to be supporting #Farm24 today.”
