We’re engaging almost 3,500 followers on Pinterest with a varied number of boards that meet people where they are and bring agricultural information to them.
We pin recipes, decorating ideas, and family fun activities, but also provide our followers with ag facts, ag inspiration, food and nutrition information, and good farm blogs to follow. Our engagement on Pinterest is a real win-win!

We have a very active blog at www.corncorps.com where you’ll find a mix of fun, farm features and boiled down articles on what it is to be a farmer. Our blog is aimed at a non-farm population, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be a resource for you!
Please check out Corn Corps and use its articles to help your non-farmer friends understand what you do everyday!
