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, tips for making videos, 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.
