Cascadian Farm & Farmville Giveaway

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I confess that on sleepless nights, I occasionally get sucked into playing games on Facebook. On of my favorites is FarmVille. It must be everyone else's favorite too, because just about everyone I went to school with or go to church with has a FarmVille farm.

Cascadian Farm, maker of yummy organic cereal and granola bars is teaming up with Farmville next week in a pretty cool partnership. Here's an excerpt of the info My Blog Spark sent me about it:

Cascadian Farm®, a pioneer in the organic food industry, is blazing yet another new trail as they become the first official branded - and organic - crop to be offered in Zynga´s popular online game, FarmVille. Joining forces, Cascadian Farm and Zynga will provide an innovative gaming experience for FarmVille fans, breathing virtual life into real world organic farming within the largest online agricultural space.

Beginning July 19 through July 26, Cascadian Farm will provide FarmVille players with a variety of benefits including, coupon offers, organic farming and green living tips, as well as the opportunity to build up their farm quickly. During the week-long partnership, branded Cascadian Farm organic blueberry crops will be the most profitable FarmVille crop offered in the game, to beginner and expert FarmVille players.

The brand has also recreated the real Cascadian Farm, located in the Upper Skagit Valley of Washington's North Cascade Mountains. The virtual Cascadian Farm will carry out the brand´s mission to grow good and honest food by encouraging FarmVille users to harvest crops that are free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. All of their online fruits and vegetables will be planted with the same ideals and values found in organic culture, while also sharing the rewards from playing the game with Cascadian Farm´s online fan base.

To further connect with other FarmVille users, Cascadian Farm has created an avatar farmer called "Farmer Joe Cascadian," who was inspired by the brand´s real-life farmers. "Farmer Joe" will serve as the "virtual" tender to the brand´s own FarmVille farm and users can request to be his neighbor by "friend-ing" him online at www.facebook.com/farmerjoecascadian and by using the FarmVille application to become his neighbor in-game. For more information, please visit www.cascadianfarm.com.

My Blog Spark sent me a cool prize pack that included some Cascadian Farm products, and a FarmVille gift card, so I can buy some Cascadian Farm blueberries for my virtual farm. I've already friended Farmer Joe Cascadian, and am looking forward to the promo. (I've also already been eating the yummy snacks. I've never had anything by Cascadian farms that I didn't like, but these granola bars are fantastic.)

The good news is that My Blog Spark and Cascadian Farm are allowing me to giveaway the same package I got, which includes Cascadian Farm Fruit & Nut Granola and Harvest Berry Chewy Granola Bars, along with a Cascadian Farm coupon and a game card containing FarmVille currency.

  24. I'd either grow grapes and have a vineyard, or else maybe something like Organic Cotton. Though, the easiest thing to do would just have a tree farm though that won't pay out for a few decades!
