Gemperle Farms in Turlock has launched an online video series to showcase various egg-related crafts, recipes and science experiments, as well as to provide a behind-the-scenes look at Gemperle Family Farms.
All the videos highlight Gemperle chickens and eggs. Topics range from explaining egg economics, or “Egg-o-Nomics,” to showcasing the Gemperle family's dedication to raising happy and healthy chickens. For example, the kid-produced “Bouncy Egg” video uses Gemperle eggs to show children how science can transform an egg into a rubber toy.
"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," said 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."
Gemperle Farms will be adding new videos monthly. There are already 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 the child-friendly videos on the Gemperle website for a chance to win one of three 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 e-mail. E-mails should be sent to email@example.com with the subject line, "Gemperle Farms Videos." In the text, viewers are asked to include their name and the number of videos watched.
