The AgChat Foundation is truly a grassroots organization. It was started about three years ago by a group of farmers and ag industry folks who had discovered the communication power of social media and wanted to help other farmers gain the skills and confidence to tell their stories.
Emily Zweber is Executive Director of AgChat Foundation. She and her husband Tim work their family dairy farm in Minnesota and make time to tell their story via social media. Emily took a few minutes out of her busy schedule at Agvocacy 2.0, AgChat’s annual conference, to tell me how the organization got started and what farmers can learn at the event. It’s not all just techy tips and tricks.
