Arizona Farmers & Twitter

We decided to take a cue from a recent article from the Phoenix New Times, Phoenix Farmers Who Tweet.  The article highlights six local farmers who utilize Twitter to communicate and educate the world about agriculture. We thought we could include those six and expand the list to Arizona and beyond!

Here’s to our 68 Follow Friday Farmers (#FF Farmers) and 20 ag-related hashtags (#)!
