Field days are educational events held on-farm or on-ranch. They are organized and hosted by the producer, oftentimes in collaboration with agricultural educators. The events usually include demonstrations of specific management practices and equipment and/or highlight research methods and results. This Farmer Field Day Toolkit includes tips and tools to help you plan a successful event, including a suggested timeline, how to work with the media and create press releases, and downloadable templates covering announcements, fliers and signage.
This toolkit is intended to support SARE Farmer/Rancher grantees hosting events related to their SARE-funded project. It also contains information and resources relevant to all producers.
