Miranda Olagaray’s agricultural insight started at a very young age growing up in the Zinfandel capital, Lodi, California. Being brought up within a farming family she was given the opportunity to be immersed in agriculture the way most don’t. Between raising animals for the fair, helping out the family business whenever she could, and taking FFA classes throughout high school, she gained a passion for agriculture. This passion grew when studying business marketing at Sonoma State University. Many of her marketing classes focused on the wine industry. This allowed her to evolve her agricultural background, creativity, and analytical thinking into marketing skills. Having gained her business marketing degree she is now able to combine her knowledge and enthusiasm as our Social Media Manager at Farmers Communication Exchange. In this role, Miranda uses her voice to help share farmers’ stories and promote California’s commodities. She strives to educate the public on the important role that farmers and agriculture play in California. Storytelling, photography, and design are just some contributors to her creative personality. Along with agriculture, she has a love for horseback riding, the outdoors, and cooking.
