Farm Photography & Authentic Marketing with Molly Peterson

June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

In the face of so many technologies and social channels online, marketing your farm can feel like a never-ending loop of “trying to keep up with posts.” What if we told you there’s a way to approach these tasks that is not only healthier for you, but more meaningful and authentic for your customers? Instead of trying to sell a product, open a window to the magic of your farm through visual storytelling. Customers want to experience the journey of farming with you, which, in turn, will lead them to support you without needing stock Canva reminders.



In this hands-on, cameras-on, phones-on workshop, internationally published farm & food photographer Molly Peterson will not only inspire you authentically market yourself and product, but will share technical, professional photography tips to ensure your accompanying photos grab people’s attention.


Molly M. Peterson is an internationally published food & farm life photographer, (currently former) regenerative pasture-based farmer, wife, mother, and farm marketing consultant helping to translate the beauty and miracle of nature and life surrounding us all. Molly’s work is emotive and authentic. Her work is regularly highlighted at the annual Farm Aid concert. Her iconic portraits of animals in the farm system, world famous chefs, well-know farmers, and perfectly plated food, have grazed magazine covers and farm-to-table restaurant walls. Her book, Growing Tomorrow, with NY Times bestselling author and farmer Forrest Pritchard is available through all major booksellers. Get to know her and her work through and on instagram @mollympetersonphotographer


  • Meet at the big cow at the entrance of Great Country Farms. If it’s beautiful out, we may learn outside. Alternatively, we may work from Henway Hard Cider, where we will also have a fun Member Meetup after the workshop.
  • Optional, FREE, wagon tour of the farm property at 4:00 pm
  • Plan to practice! Bring your cameras and phones
  • At the close of the event, participants will practice what they’ve learned to help one another get a great farmer headshot.

Note: Following this event, Future Harvest is hosting a networking event for our members and anyone and everyone who wants to learn about our organization and get involved. The Member Meet Up will start with wagon tours of the property immediately following the photography workshop then take place at Henway Hard Cider from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Learn more and SIGN-UP HERE.
