Turlock, Calf.-based Gemperle Farms has launched an online video series to showcase egg-related crafts, recipes and science experiments, and to provide a behind-the-scenes look at Gemperle Family Farms.
“At our Gemperle Chicken Ranch, we think it’s important to educate customers on what makes Gemperle Eggs special while having fun at the same time,” explained Gemperle Family Farms President Steve Gemperle. “These videos take an egg and transform it from a kitchen staple into an interesting and engaging science experiment, recipe or craft.”
All the videos highlight the exceptional Gemperle chickens and eggs, ranging from explaining egg economics, or Egg-o-Nomics, to showcasing the Gemperle family’s dedication to happy and healthy chickens. For example, the kid-produced Bouncy Egg video uses Gemperle eggs to show kids how science can transform an egg into a rubber toy. Gemperle Farms will be adding new videos monthly; already there are more than a dozen videos available.
In support of the new video series, Gemperle Farms is hosting an online contest, “Holiday Video Viewing.” Contestants are invited to watch educational and entertaining child-friendly videos on the Gemperle website for a chance to win one of three fabulous prizes. The first place winner will receive a $300 Amazon gift card; second place a $100 Amazon gift card; and third place a $50 Amazon gift card.
“The contest aims to cultivate a richer, more interactive experience for our customers,” Gemperle said. “Our educational videos are the ideal platform to teach kids about the Gemperle Egg Ranch, but really it’s all about having fun.”
Participation in the Holiday Video Viewing contest is simple. Just go to the Gemperle Family Farms video webpage (http://gemperle.com/gemperle-videos/), watch a video, and send Gemperle Farms an email.
