social media marketing for farms and farmers: getting started will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6 at the Frank Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

It is presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program as part of their 2017-2018 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series.

Social media has become the fastest, easiest way to stay connected to your customers and tell your story, but it can be hard to know where to begin. This seminar is geared towards participants who want to learn more about marketing their farm or farm business through social media and will detail the basics of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, how to set up social media for a farm or small business and how best to tell each unique story to connect with customers and the community.

The instructor is Kristen Kovatch Bentley, managing editor at online equestrian magazine and a proud member of the Peterson Farm family, who developed and manages the farm’s social media presence.

The cost is $5 per family.

Pre-registration is required prior to the workshop to allow for adequate time to prepare printed resources and materials.
