Roundtable Series on Consumer Engagement

May 7-11, 2018 | Illinois, Indiana, Iowa

Our Consumer Engagement program will foster discussion of best practices for engaging consumers and addressing the public’s questions about food production. We support farmers in improving communication with the consumer, because it’s every farmer’s commitment to provide safe, healthy food for every table.

Workshop 1 – Consumer Engagement through Agritourism
Monday, May 7 – Fair Oaks, Indiana

Workshop 2 – Consumer Engagement Online
Tuesday, May 8 – Bloomington, Illinois

Workshop 3 – Consumer Engagement Face-to-Face
Thursday, May 9 – Donahue, Iowa

A group of about a dozen German social media-savvy farmers will travel through Illinois, Indiana and Iowa to visit farms and other sites of interest. Three workshops for both German and US farmers take place over the course of the week to discuss how to re-establish agriculture in the midst of our society.
