Farm Trippin is an enlightening social media campaign to bring awareness to small scale agriculture throughout the United States. We showcase different ecological and chemical free methods and techniques for growing food.
We feel our current food system is plagued with lack of integrity and a veil of secrecy. The society we live in has become disconnected from where their food comes from. We plan to showcase ways to grow mindfully, while featuring the individuals and their stories behind growing food. Along the way we exchange thoughts and ideas to grow each other.
