Tell her what she’s won!

We recently hosted a promotion on our Facebook page. The 1000th person to “like” us won a prize package of Wyoming Made goodies! Our winner was Margreet from Ohio.

Our 1000th fan on Facebook won a large prize package of Wyoming Made goodies!

This is what Margreet told us about herself, “We have a small farm…set of 13 year old boy/girl twins, a 3 year old little girl, a golden retriever, a hamster, a cockatiel, a guinea pig and a bunny! I grew up in Holland (my dad had one of those large windmills) and was around animals all my life, so I guess there is always an interest.”

So obviously Margreet isn’t really involved in production agriculture, but we are so excited that folks outside the industry are connecting with www.realranchers.com to find out what REALLY happens in the meadows, mountains and Main Streets of Wyoming! We started this blog nearly a year and a half ago to help spread truthful stories and correct misinformation about agriculture and rural living.

Thank you to these Wyoming Made companies for your generous donation to our giveaway!

  1. This article relates to the Buffalo FFA chapter in Buffalo, Wyoming. However, rather then winning an item, the chapter donates to local food pantries and is dedicated to Community Service. Youth in Wyoming and in every state are and can be making a difference.
