From Ireland to France – Felfies

French Peasants

“Felfies” is a contraction of farmers and selfies.

It all started in January 2014 when the Irish Farmers Journal launched a photo contest encouraging farmers to send in pictures of themselves at work.

Quickly the phenomenon went viral:

In only a few weeks, farmers from all over the world including France had sent their pictures. The hashtag #felfie still receives daily images of farmers and a dedicated website opened in order to gather all the images. 

The amount of user generated content produced shows that against all odds, the farming community is very digital friendly. 

Here are examples of felfies – Many thanks to them for their great shots
