Agricultural Zoom backgrounds that bring the farm to you

By Laura Bardot

Whether you’re a work-from-home veteran or temporarily sequestered to your kitchen table, chances are you’ve been on more video calls in the last month than you were on last year. The unique times we’re living in have put more value on the digital tools at our disposal than ever before, which brings its own set of challenges.

If you’re growing tired of your home office backdrop, or maybe facing distractions from pets, kids, your spouse (or all of the above), we have a solution.

We have gathered some agriculture-centered Zoom backgrounds to help things feel a little bit more peaceful while you are sheltering in place. Taken 100% by AdFarmers and the various rural scenes we inhabit, these backdrops are sure to spark some great conversations about agriculture on your next Zoom call. Whether you choose pasture cattle or scenic grain harvest, we hope these backgrounds can help ease the stress from some chaotic kids or pestering pets.

Maybe you’d like to find yourself in a lush green pasture surrounded by grazing cattle.

Or perhaps you’d rather be sitting in a prairie canola field.
