October Calendar: Farm Marketing Events & Ideas
“Wake me up when September ends…”
The lyrics to the Green Day song are definitely depressing, but there’s something about October that’s hopeful. Summer’s gone. Fall’s here. The holidays are coming. It’s also harvest season and very busy on farms.
I hope this month’s calendar inspires some marketing ideas for you. There are also a few hashtag events happening that you might want to be a part of so be sure to scroll through.
