Take Over @PAVEGGIES Instagram Account

April 3, 2019

The Pennsylvania Vegetable Marketing & Research Program (PVMRP) is on Instagram as @paveggies and we’re always in search of fellow local food professionals and Pennsylvania vegetable lovers to take over our account, educate, and share their story with our audience through photos, videos, captions, and hashtags created uniquely by YOU.

Here are a few details, but the best way to get started is by submitting this form:

  1. Once you’ve submitted your form and have been confirmed through correspondence with the PVMRP, we’ll grant you access to our login credentials (unless we’re taking over your account, which we also welcome).
  2. We’ll provide you with a few easy to follow guidelines and tips, such as using the hashtag #paveggies in each caption. Simple stuff!
  3. We’ll provide you with a Guest Instagram Announcement Graphic to share on your various marketing channels, letting your fans know they should follow along for the special occasion.
  4. We will also announce the takeover on our platform and tag your account, so you’re welcome to simply re-share that post as your announcement.
  5. You’ll use the agreed on period (one day or more) to share at least 5 posts per day (videos, photos, stories, and/or graphics) and corresponding captions.
  6. We will not require content to be reviewed in advance as we wish for the experience to feel as organic as possible for everyone engaged. We suggest entertaining and educating the audience – not selling or preaching to them.
  7. Feel free to extend more content to the Instagram Story as well. This is your time to shine, so share in a way that you feel most comfortable.

  • Is 2019 the year of fennel? It may be when you find out how simple it is to prepare. Braising is one of our favorite methods, finishing in the oven with a sprinkle of Parmesan. You can also chop it up and enjoy it raw in a salad. Look for it from your local farmers and enjoy the homegrown happiness. #paveggies #fennel #pennsylvania #vegetable #farmers #braising #braised #homegrown #health #happiness

  • Grafting is a horticultural technique whereby tissues of plants are joined so as to continue their growth together. This technique is commonly used on particular tomato varieties in Pennsylvania in greenhouses and high tunnels to improve the yield and/or disease resistance. #tomato #tomatoes #farming #agriculture #paveggies #pennsylvania #grafting

Ok y’all, @bonappetitmag has put together #aweekendwithoutplastic campaign so I wanted to share my favorite way to store cooking greens like Kale, Swiss chard, Boc choy...you name it.
🌱first thing I do is wet the whole bunch of greens
🌱then I take a cotton or linen cloth, and wet the whole cloth too...just soak it and ring it out so it’s soaked through, but not dripping.
🌱for this I’m using a furoshiki cloth from @thekitchengardenseries (Philly based!) that I absolutely adore and use all the time for just about everything in the kitchen!
🌱next just wrap up your greens so they are completely covered. Put your bundle into your fridge, and you’re good!  No plastic!
And perfectly stored greens! The greens will last for a close to a week this way, just re-dampen your cloth if it dries out. We can do this!! Less is more ❤️ #taprootfarmpa #taprootfarmcsa #passionforfoodpassionforsustainability
  • If you used some #paveggies preservation tips from paveggies.org, perhaps you still have last season tomatoes to put into action for this delicious dip. #Repost @pa.eats

We love this from-scratch queso recipe featuring PA cheese and homemade salsa using @paveggies! Marisa McClellan of @foodinjars stopped by the Pennsylvania Kitchen to whip up this insanely easy and delightful snack. You can find the recipe on PAEats.com and in Marisa’s latest cookbook, The Food in Jars Kitchen. In this new cookbook you’ll find 140 ways to utilize preserved pantry goodies. We will be launching an Instagram contest this week to giveaway a copy of the book! Stay tuned. 🧀 #PAEats #PennsylvaniaKitchen
  • Did you know just half a cup of asparagus contains 1.8 grams of fiber, which is 7% of your daily needs? We have our clocks on local asparagus countdown. Not too much longer! What’s the first thing you’ll make after locating local #paveggies
  • Keeping calm and thinking warm thoughts. #paveggies #planting #plantingseason #pennsylvania #vegetables #greenhouse #paproduce
