Fruit Growers Striving for the Best

Social Media Campaign is launched for Maryland Berry Producers

The Maryland small fruit season is about to begin!  We've got what you need to help promote the small fruits that you so proudly produce.  

Highlighting the way this year is the relaunch of the social media program. We encourage you to support and participate in by including #MarylandBerryFarmers in your Facebook and Instagram posts.  Check out the Maryland Berry Facebook and Instagram pages where we will feature the items on our social media accounts to encourage consumers to shop and purchase Maryland Berries!

The social media schedule will include a fast-moving, post-packed plan that will continually encourage and remind consumers to purchase YOUR BERRIES, MARYLAND BERRIES!  

This plan includes but is not limited to recipes, fun facts, reminders to stop by local Maryland farms to buy the berry in season, etc.  This schedule will be adjusted as dictated by the weather so check in often.  We want to share your pages as well. If you have a recipe from your market and would like to for us to use in the social media plan, please email it to Kay Rentzel.


Here are the links to the social media accounts. Please share them on your social media pages to make this a successful campaign.
