Farms in Focus

Share your story with ‘Farms in Focus’

With spring planting knocking on the calendar door, Michigan Farm Bureau is encouraging members to share their stories with local media through its newly updated program, Farms in Focus.

The goal is to connect our farmer-members with online, social, print and broadcast media for series or standalone story about an interesting aspect of your farm.

Farms in Focus paves the way for news organizations to give readers, listeners, viewers and surfers unique insight into the industry that feeds us every day.

MFB will connect farms with media that fit their interests and assist with story ideas and other resources to enhance the coverage. Then you and the media outlet coordinate to determine the frequency, nature and scope of your story.
