From 5am on 10 August to 5am on 11 August 2017, “24 hours in Farming” is back supported by FG Insight and Morrisons. The aim of the event is for UK Agriculture to “shout about the industry and why they are so proud to work within it” and to show consumers how much passion and commitment goes into producing the food they eat. Last year the event reached an audience of 112 million and trended in the Top 5 on Twitter all day.
You can get involved by posting photos and videos on any social media platform using the hashtag #Farm24 to let people know what you are doing that day. This year, the event organisers are trying to make it bigger and better than last year by encouraging farmers to also host on-farm events, give talks to local groups or arrange interviews with local newspapers or radio stations.
