A successful farm business requires extensive planning, execution, and support through both traditional and digital means. In recent years, social media has emerged as an invaluable platform for connecting farm businesses with their customers, promoting products and services, and embracing unique strategies to solve problems without the need for capital or labor. With the ever-growing popularity of social media, incorporating platforms like Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook into your farm business plan can help you create a successful operation for years to come.


When creating your farm business plan, it’s important to consider how you will use social media to your advantage. First and foremost, you should create a comprehensive list of goals for your farm’s social media pages and how you will use them to reach your audience. This could include sharing information about your farm, engaging with customers and potential customers, and walking through processes like harvest and planting.


In addition to goal-setting, you should consider leveraging social media as a marketing tool. You can promote items on your website, highlight specials, and post photos of successful harvests and farmers’ markets– all of which are important elements of a successful farm business. You should also take advantage of influencers or agriculture-based organizations that can help to share and promote your page. This type of word-of-mouth endorsement can boost your profile and bolster your credibility within the industry.


No matter how you apply social media to your farm business, you should always create a professional front. This means using high-quality photos, avoiding excessive promotional language, and answering questions or comments from customers promptly. Additionally, you should be sure to link to certifications, contact information, and other relevant information on your social media pages to demonstrate your farm’s commitment to transparency, quality, and excellence.


Using social media in your farm business strategy will not be a “one-size-fits-all” solution. Each farm business situation may require a unique approach, but by carefully planning your strategy, remaining transparent and professional, and leveraging important relationships and influencers, you can successfully create a powerful and profitable farm business with the help of social media.
