Eight webisodes are now posted on AmericasFarmers.com with such titles as “Family Business,” “Kids and Cattle,” “Love of the Land” and “Growing the Farm.”
“It’s my passion for farming that really drives me,” states third-generation Tennessee farmer Ray Sneed in “Love of the Land.” “Anything that you do, if you don’t have a passion for it, I guarantee you’re not going to be successful.”
Adds Ray’s brother and farming partner, Terry Sneed, “To be able to farm on that land and then to see it producing something for someone I may never know or get a chance to meet, that’s worthwhile.”
The Boyd family, of Sylvania, Georgia, is also featured in the television campaign and webisode series. “I think there is a bright future in agriculture right now because we’ve got a growing population, and we don’t have a growing number of farmers,” says Will Boyd. “As farmers, it’s just vitally important that we keep producing more product, become more efficient, and be good stewards of the land.”
New webisodes are posted each month to AmericasFarmers.com. Upcoming topics include farm moms, farming challenges and producing for the world.
