Tell us why you Love Rural America

During February, we'll be sharing why we love rural America. We hope you'll join in by using the #LoveRuralAm hashtag on social media.

Take a photo, compose a poem, or write a story on why you #LoveRuralAm. Email info@cfra.org or share it with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (@RuralNerd).

We’ve started with photos from our staff. Here’s the first six:

Beautiful Barns

Beautiful Barns

Beautiful barns of all kinds can be found in rural America. Do you have one in your neck of the woods that you admire?
 

Bright Futures

Bright Futures

Another great reason to Love Rural America - bright futures. From hands-on Farm to School programming with community members who have ag expertise, to the individual learning experiences only students in smaller schools receive - students in rural communities know the impact they can make. Share the bright futures from your rural community!
 

Family Farms

Family Farms

Family farms are another reason we Love Rural America and the reason we fight for small to mid-size farmers who help shape our rural communities. Give a shout out to your local (or your own) family farm!
 

Entrepreneurship Opportunities

Entrepreneurship Opportunities

Rural American communities offer a unique opportunity to become an entrepreneur. Like or share this post if you are one!
 

Arts & Culture

Arts & Culture

Arts and culture are alive in well in rural America. We were able to be a part of that as a sponsor of the Good Living Tour which brought Nebraska based bands to rural venues across the state. Where are your favorite rural venues?
 

Local Food

Local Food

We love local food as much as we do rural America. That's why building stronger food systems is a priority in the work we do to support food producers and rural food businesses.
