Facebook, Farm Day, and more

Thanks to everyone who responded to last week’s newsletter with helpful suggestions and great ideas.  We now have quite a to-do list of things we need to get done over the next month or so.

Several subscribers pointed out that we don’t have a real Facebook page.  Now we do.  If you want to help us get the word out, just type “Terra Firma Farm” in the search window on your Facebook page and “Like” us.

We will use the Facebook page as a way to post regular pictures and observations of what’s happening around the farm as well bring other organic food and farming content that we think you may find interesting to your attention.  We will also put  up a link every week to the current newsletter in case you want to share it with other people every once in a while.

We also got some recommendations on improvements to our website that will make it more useful to subscribers.  For example, you can now find a list of the contents of the box you will be receiving each week on the site on Monday or Tuesday so you can get an idea of what you’ll be getting in your box.  We will also post the link to that page on our Facebook page.

As we don’t currently have a staff member dedicated to social media (shocking, I know), it was news to me when one subscriber informed us that we don’t have many Yelp reviews.  If you are a regular Yelp user and you feel so inclined, I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt to add to those reviews.

No doubt that we would be much better at promoting our farm on the internet  if we didn’t spend so much darn time, well, you know, FARMING!  Unfortunately, that’s not a problem we’re going to solve anytime soon…
