At Dark Hammock Legacy Ranch, we have a long and rich history filled with family, friends, and livestock. But our history wouldn’t be complete without community involvement. The community supports us, and we, in turn, work to get involved and do our part. Here are some ways farmers and ranchers can engage in their community and work to make a positive impact in the lives of those around them.

Youth Organizations
Whether you enjoy volunteering your time at the youth fair or helping to guide 4-H or FFA groups, helping to foster little ones’ love of agriculture can lead to some precious and rewarding moments. If you’re not able to make a commitment on a consistent basis, ask if you can help with presentations on your specialty topic. 

Farmers Markets
While this can be beneficial to your profits, it also gives farmers and ranchers a great way to get to know customers directly. You can answer questions consumers may have about your product or the process that goes into creating it. It’s also a great way to advertise for other areas, like agritours for your farm

County Fair
Whether you’re there to show or volunteer, these events are a good reminder to the public of the hard work that goes into raising livestock or growing crops. Filled with educational and connection opportunities, they’re a great way to get involved and network with others in your industry. 

Ag Boards and Organizations
No matter your specialty, there’s a board or organization for you. Attend meetings, participate in community outreach events, and get to know others in your community. They can prove a beneficial resource if you’re struggling with a problem or looking to stay up to date on the latest news and information in your field. 

Our community is a huge part of why we do what we do. We’re thankful for your support. To learn more about what we do, visit our website or contact us.
