I took a quick tour of eastern Pennsylvania and northern Maryland this week to visit 6 Small Farm Central farms: Village Acres Farm, North Mountain Pastures, Norman's Farm Market, Three Springs Fruit Farm, One Straw Farm, and Whitmore Farm.
The main impetus of the trip was to gather video footage for a website redesign of smallfarmcentral.com that we are putting together for release this fall. However, talking to farmers that are extremely successful with their web marketing yielded all sorts of great footage that I will be releasing via the blog, in presentations, and in any other ways I can think to use it!
In the spirit of that, here is Ben Wenk from Three Springs Fruit Farm talking about the great peach debate of 2010 that occurred over Twitter. Beware, there are some Twitter terms thrown about in this video, so if you are not a Twitter user, ignore those and watch this as an example of how conversations can happen online.
