Stemilt Growers has teamed up with two popular food bloggers to launch its "#CherrySweet Summer Sweepstakes," offering consumers a chance to celebrate cherry season and win weekly prizes.
Participants who sign up on the company's website, blog or social media channels also will receive a weekly email from Stemilt throughout June and July that features a healthy cherry recipe by either Carolyn Ketchum from "All Day I Dream About Food" or Connie Ott from "MiscFinds4U."
“Our #Cherry Sweet Summer Sweeps is all about giving consumers what they’ve told us they want – healthy recipes for their favorite fruit of the summer – cherries,” said Brianna Shales, communications manager for Wenatchee, Wash.-based Stemilt. “We’ve partnered with two of our food blogger friends to serve up fresh cherry recipes and weekly prizes to consumers all summer long, in hopes of inspiring people to enjoy Stemilt cherries in new yet nutritious ways.”
According to Shales, the #CherrySweet Summer Sweepstakes is one of many efforts the company has taken on to engage directly with consumers about its product line.
“We recently surpassed 50,000 likes on Facebook and continue to share fresh content from our farms and the table on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Stemilt.com, and our blog," Shales added. "Consumers want to know who grew their food and we’re all about telling them our story by bringing the farm right to the places they spend their time, all the while offering up inspiration for enjoying our fruits in new ways.”
