To give Culver’s social media followers a peek into a day in the life of farming community members, the restaurant chain has asked agricultural influencers to share photos and videos during a seven-week social content series called #FarmingFridays.
The people invited to share information about their farming experiences on Culver’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts will do so every Friday from June 24 to Aug. 5.
“Our restaurants are committed to helping our guests learn more about the people behind the food that they eat,” said David Stidham, vice president of marketing. “We’re humbled by the opportunity to help agricultural experts share their stories with people who otherwise may not have a chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to have a career in agriculture.”
Here is the #FarmingFridays schedule:
- June 24: Peterson Farm Bros – Kansas farmers and YouTube sensations.
- July 1: The Farmer’s Daughter USA – Amanda is a practicing attorney by day and farmer’s daughter by night who helps her followers learn more about where their food comes from.
- July 8: National FFA Officer Team – Leaders of the national youth organization that focuses on agricultural education.
- July 15: Alice in Dairyland – Ann O’Leary is a spokesperson for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection who travels the state promoting its agricultural industry.
- July 22: Troy and Stacy Hadrick – Fifth-generation South Dakota ranchers and advocates for agriculture are passionate about the beef industry, sharing their story and taking pride in raising beef for American families.
- July 29: Dairy Carrie – A Wisconsin dairy farmer who loves to share stories about her family's 100-cow farm on her blog.
- Aug. 5: Pam Jahnke, AKA the Fabulous Farm Babe – Host of the Farm Report with Pam Jahnke, Jahnke believes that communicating on behalf of food producers is exactly what she was made for.
This initiative is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers program, which recognizes the hard work and commitment of the farmers who feed the nation. To date, the Thank You Farmers initiative has raised nearly 1 million dollars in support of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, local FFA chapters and a variety of local agricultural organizations.
