    EXCHANGE: Marketing becomes important to farms

    Congerville farmer Henry Brockman admits he doesn't understand Facebook. "I've never seen Facebook with my own eyes," said Brockman, whose business is called Henry's Farm. Yet the Henry's Farm Facebook page is updated frequently by his sister, Terra Brockman. Marketing online and in person has become more important for small farms that do everything from sell at local farmers' markets to produce for large companies, said Atina Diffley, a Minnesota organic farmer and educator who spoke during the recent Central Illinois Sustainable Farming Network annual meeting last month in Bloomington. Since small farmers compete with large grocery chains, branding and marketing their farm and maintaining relationships with customers is an important part of business, she said.

  • "We just need to relax a little bit and play good defense and be the good defensive players we all are," Turner said. "I wouldn't say we're pressing, but everyone's aware of what's going on. Sometimes I guess you try a little harder and then you get out of character."

  • "Anytime you give a team an extra out, it gives them a better opportunity to score," said shortstop Justin Turner, whose throwing error in the second led to a pair of runs. "I don't think anybody's going out there trying to make errors. We just need to relax a little bit and play good defense and be the good defensive players we all are.
