Southern Farm Network

Main picture

The Southern Farm Network has been serving the agriculture industry in the Carolinas since 1974, with daily farm reports on a number of network radio affiliates throughout the farming community. See current affiliates here.

The reports contain specialized timely information about ag weather, commodity markets, and the latest ag news. Included are interviews with ag professionals, advice and updates on crop progress, disease and insect threats, farm legislation and more. Listeners are kept up to date with major farm meetings and events as well.

The Southern Farm Network also provides a vehicle for companies providing products and services to the growers and producers of the Carolinas allowing them to connect with prospective customers. The farm community is always looking for higher efficiency and a greater return on their farm investment. In most cases, they welcome the opportunity to learn about products and services that can improve their bottom line. Due to the highly targeted nature of the network, farm advertisers have a special opportunity to zero in on their target prospects, and can air advertising in conjunction with the daily farm programs. In addition to the convenience of isolating the radio stations with farm programming, advertisers achieve significant network discounts on radio commercials airing across all affiliates.

Southern Farm Network programming airs on some of the largest radio stations in the farming communities of North and South Carolina, covering an area populated by more than 8.4 million people and allowing most producers the opportunity to find a station in range airing SFN programs. All it takes is a good old fashioned radio to hear this the network’s information.

In 2010, the Southern Farm Network enhanced their ag information services by launching its companion website SFNToday.com. The website allows users to access the Southern Farm Network’s radio reports and constantly updated ag information on demand.

 

 

 

 

 

Rhonda Garrison Bio

Rhonda's a native of the Texas Panhandle, born and raised on a cotton farm where she saw cotton farming go from ditch irrigation and boll pullers pulling trailers to modules and center pivot irrigation.

After graduating from Texas Tech University she got her start in radio with KGNC News Talk 710 in Amarillo, Texas. As a member of National Association of Farm Broadcasters, Rhonda has traveled coast to coast as a farm broadcaster, attending major conventions on cotton, cattle, soybeans, corn and wheat, as well as visiting the trading floors of the Chicago Board of Trade, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Rhonda joined Southern Farm Network July of 2007 and became an immediate “old timer”. Seems the Carolinas and Texas agribusiness community needs are much the same. Great Programs presented in a professional, yet personal manner.
