24 Hours in Farming, kicking off at 5am on Thursday 8 August 2019, encourages farmers to show the general public a typical working day in farming through the power of social media.
Organised by FG Insights and sponsored by Morrisons, the aim of the day is to showcase the passion and commitment that goes into producing the food we eat.
Everyone working in the industry is encouraged to share social media posts over the 24 hours from 5am Thursday 8 August to 5am Friday 9 August using the hashtag #Farm24.
How to get involved
You can take part on any social media platform, although Twitter and Facebook are the most popular channels on the day. Simply tag your post #Farm24. Throughout the day, Farmers Guardian will be commenting, sharing and collating posts into stories for added impact.
Show your typical working day - whatever that involves. Post as many times as you like. And if you have visitors to your farm, or you're attending a meeting, or doing something social, show that too.
Photos and video
Including photos or a short video will really bring your posts to life. They're much more likely to be read, commented on and shared among the general public. Try to keep video clips to a maximum of one minute and make sure they're landscape (rather than portrait).
