Good podcast? Give it some love!
Jupiter Farms, YOUR community has its very own podcast. The Jupiter Farms Residents PODCAST! Of course, JFR has monthly community meetings, and we regularly interact on our Facebook page and there's also our e-Newsletter. Yet we keep hearing from people wanting to hear MORE about our community. To answer that, we’ve decided to do a monthly podcast to keep you even more informed about what’s going on in "The Farms." Sure, we’ll hit all the basics, “When is the hoedown?” “When do the Christmas Trees go on pre-sale?” “When is the next meeting?” – but we hope to bring you a lot more. Many times, an email or a post can get missed – our messages have a lot of competition out there, so we want to meet you where YOU are - and for most of us that’s on our mobile phones.So, whether you’re an experienced podcaster or not quite sure where to get them – don’t worry. If you’re reading this, you’re in the right spot. Just hit the subscribe button wherever you got this podcast and you’re good. Every episode we release will come to you absolutely free.Thanks for listening! And please don’t forget to hit that subscribe button and tell your friends and neighbors about this exciting new addition to our community.
