Maryland Department of Agriculture encourages you to take “selfies” with your favorite farmer and tweet or post them on Facebook using #GetYourFRESHon! MDA’s Maryland’s Best program will use some of the hashtagged photos in its promotions of farmers markets and Maryland agriculture around the state.
The social media campaign will run until Dec. 1st, after which MDA will pick a few favorite shots of consumers with their farmers that were tagged with #GetYourFRESHon! and winners will be rewarded with a collection of Maryland’s Best goodies! This will include the first two seasons of Maryland Public Television’s popular show Maryland Farm & Harvest on DVD and a basket of fresh local produce, Maryland cheeses and other artisan ‘goodies’.
