Why Everyone Talks About Facebook Ads
Facebook Ads offer access to a wide audience while letting you target who you’re paying to connect with. This allows you to create branded marketing personalized to their needs.

Create Facebook Ads targeted to people living in that area, who have behaviors in line with farming, and behaviors that indicate they’re looking for a home. You can then tailor your copy to speak to their needs.

You’ll name your campaign and then have the opportunity to optimize your ads through audience targeting and placement.
For audience targeting, choose to create a new target audience or use a saved one. To create a custom audience, you can choose to use your Facebook Pixel.
