Nebraska Farm Bureau Says Chipotle Ads Misleading About Agriculture

Nebraska Farm Bureau Says Chipotle Ads Misleading About Agriculture

The Nebraska Farm Bureau Board of directors is outlining concerns they have with a recent advertising campaign that they say gives a false impression of modern agriculture.  Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson says it’s in the recent Chipotle “scarecrow” advertising that misleads the public about American farmers and American agriculture.

He says Chipotle’s ad campaign also leads the public to think all farmers and ranchers care about is making money and don’t care about the environment.   T

Nelson says they’ve written to Chipotle company officials offering to meet with them to set the record straight and clear up any misunderstandings about agriculture.

He says his group is willing to speak not only with Chipotle but with anyone else having concerns about agriculture.
