Join Us In Saying Thanks Culver’s Commitment to America’s Family Farms Runs Deep
Farming Fridays: Our Favorite Day of the Week
Move aside, #FBF. There’s a new hashtag in town: #FarmingFridays.
To give our guests a peek into a day in the life of folks in the agricultural industry, we created a seven-week social series called #FarmingFridays. From National FFA Officers to bloggers to YouTube farming sensations, members of the agricultural community will share their farming stories through photos and videos on Culver’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on Fridays, from June 24 to August 5.
Get to know—and follow—the people who will show you what a day in their life is like.

The Peterson Farm Bros, Kansas farmers and YouTube sensations, are dedicated to educating their fans and correcting misperceptions about modern-day farming and agriculture. Culver’s even worked with them on their video, “Takin’ Care of Livestock”, a parody of “Takin’ Care of Business.”
