The New York Farm Bureau Foundation is excited to announce a new project that will bring consumers closer to the farmers who produce their food. We are launching a new video series entitled “Meet Your Farmer” that the public can view online through the Foundation’s YouTube and social media pages and the Foundation’s website at nyfbfoundation.org. The website has been updated to be smartphone friendly for people looking to view the series on a mobile device or tablet. The Foundation will also be updating their commodity brochures and calendar to include QR codes that will increase the accessibility for viewers to watch the videos.
The videos feature New York farm families talking about their farms and their passion for growing food and caring for their land and animals. The project fits into the Foundation’s mission of sowing the seeds of understanding to educate the public about modern day agriculture.
The first farms to be showcased in the series include McCormick Farms in Bliss, NY, CY Farms in Elba, NY and Orbaker’s Fruit Farm in Williamson, NY. The Foundation will soon add more farms to this ongoing project.
Be sure to check them out and meet some of your New York farmer neighbors!
