Sioux Falls - As a follow up to the 2010 "Free Groceries for a Year" sweepstakes, South Dakota Farm Families are offering up another opportunity for South Dakotans to win big. South Dakota Farm Families is offering the chance for South Dakota residents to register to win a $500 grocery gift card to purchase their favorite foods for fall barbecues and tailgate parties.
Beginning Saturday, September 1st South Dakota residents can register for the $500 grocery gift card by liking South Dakota Farm Families on Facebook and registering on the Facebook page. Consumers can register through the month of September.
Not only will South Dakotans who like the South Dakota Farm Families Facebook page be able to register for the $500 grocery gift card. By liking the Facebook page, consumers will receive links to recipes, cooking tips and interaction with South Dakota Farm Families through videos, blogs and farm tour details through-out the year.
"As more South Dakotans are becoming generations removed from the farm, we hope to continue offering more of these opportunities for consumers to interact with South Dakota Farm Families," said Steve Rommereim a hog farmer from Alcester, South Dakota, and President of Ag United. "Using social media is an excellent opportunity for us interact with South Dakota consumers and to let them know we share their values - taking care of our families, taking care of our animals and land and giving back to our communities."
Participating South Dakota agriculture organizations include Ag United for South Dakota, South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, South Dakota Beef Industry Council, Midwest Dairy Association, South Dakota Pork Producers Council, Dakota Layers, South Dakota Wheat Commission and South Dakota Corn Utilization Council.
