Golden Touch Farm's Weather Channel

Online Video has become such a major part of our Farm's persona. It allows us to share our Farm, Animals, Products, and all other aspects of our life with our neighbors whether they live on our street or across the world. They also act as a wonderful marketing tool, as they stir up interest and introduce our farm to people who were not necessarily looking for it.

We use Vimeo.com to showcase our videos for a bunch of reasons, but mainly because it has such an amazing community and great accessible staff. When browsing videos on YouTube, you can't but notice that almost every video has horrible/negative comments on it, regardless of the subject matter. Vimeo is the exact opposite, people are supportive, helpful, and exciting to share their own little worlds through online video.

Not only do we upload all of our own videos there, we also use the site to make our own channel, called the Weather Channel. As farmers, we are all obsessed with the Weather and spend half of our lives watching it, our Channel is a collection of all the best Weather videos submitted to Vimeo by a ton of different users from across the planet. Below is our Channel, when you have a free moment be sure to watch it.
