How to prioritize your Facebook pages so you can see them more.

Do you click to like pages on Facebook that you want to see but then never get to see them?

It's becuase Facebooks system is not designed to favour pages unless you are very active with that page or unless the page owner pays Facebook for their page to show up more.

Good news, buried deep within the Facebook settings is a way to make it so you see your Facebook pages more. It is not hard once you do it a few times but it is literally buried, so it does have a few steps. Once you get started, you will be able to change the way your feed is, getting to see more of the pages you liked.

We hope you will set Smith's Nature Friendly Farm to your favourites as we would love to be a regular on your feed! Here is exactly how to do it.

Starting Point - Start from your main Facebook feed page as shown below.



Step 2 - Click on "Pages" on the left hand side of your screen.




Step 3 - Now click the "Liked Pages" on the left hand side.




Step 4 - On the right hand side and middle of your screen all the pages you have liked will appear here. If you have liked a lot keep scrolling as more will appear as you scroll down.They will load as fast as your internet provider allows, so give it a second.




Step 5 - Once you have found the group you want to change, click on the 3 dots to access the settings for that group.



Step 6 - This is where you can do a lot to decide how your liked page is fed to you. The most important is to set it up to how you want to see it. If you want to see it less, you can snooze it or silence it totally. You can leave it for Facebook to decide by leaving it on "default" or you can set it up so you can see the page more by setting it as favourite. The settings also allow you to decide how you see the video's they post and offers. To change, just click the option you want your page set to.



Finally, make sure to find us and set us to your favourites. We'd love for you to see us in your feed.



When I went through my list of pages I was shocked at how many Facebook pages I had not seen in a long time. Sometimes it's becuase the owner doesn't post but sometimes Facebook is just not feeding it to you. It gets lost in the noise. Facebook pages are really fantastic for helping change the content on your feed. For example, if you want to see less politics and more plants you can join plant groups. But you have to keep liking or commenting to ensure Facebook sends you those posts. These steps above should help those who are not active likers or commenters on Facebook. It also helps a small business who likely does not have the cash flow to pay for the advertising with Facebook yet.

We hope this helps you navigate the pages Faebook settings.

2021 Garlic on the farm

Garlic is by far one of the easiest plants to grow. Why more people don’t grow it, I just don’t understand. A good amount of the garlic in North America is imported despite the ease of growing it and storing it here. For me, it is very rare that I even purchase garlic anymore.

This year we will be growing 3 garlic varieties:

Creole Garlic - This is a great softneck garlic variety that has some of the prettiest pink bulbs. These garlic have very small bulbs but are packed with excellent flavour. Great for eating fresh within a salad or marinade. This variety is best suited for our Southern climate.

Bogatyr - This hardneck garlic is known for it’s true garlic flavour. It is rich and with a bit of heat that doesn’t overwhelm. It is fantastic for those that love the garlic flavour or those who do a fair bit of italian cooking. Makes great garlic bread.

Elephant Garlic - We are trialing Elephant Garlic thanks to a lovely customer who gave us a bulb. Elephant Garlic is not a true garlic, but actually a member of the leek family. It is milder than most garlic and considered a bit more palatable for some when used raw.

The Bogatyr and Elephant Garlic is being grown for the first time in our garden. This means the first few years it is being grown to expand the seed stock and to be tested. In future years these varieties (if they test well) will be made available for sale through our farm.

The Creole garlic is in its second year of growth and we should have a larger amount available. This means it will likely be available through our farm in late Spring of 2021.



Why should you cook with garlic?

According to medical news today there are a lot of great reasons to love garlic. It is said to help lead you to a healthier heart and fight off many well known cancers. And of course we cannot forget how it wards off Vampires!

Check out the medical news article, there are a lot of health reasons to love garlic.

Garlic is for sure a staple product in our home and we are excited each year about expanding our garlic volume to serve our customers with great home grown flavour.
