Here are some learning points from their Page:

Cover photo – high impact Cover Photo highlighting the competition to win an iPad. The Cover Photo is changed regularly in line with the season or a competition. For example, a Halloween recipe was posted previously.

Extensive use of apps – there are tabs linking to 2 competitions, newsletter sign-up, Pinterest, recipes, a game and information on sustainability.

Message button – The Message button is enabled for Fans and visitors to communicate privately with the Page Admins.

Image based posts – Posts are more often than not image based or accompanied by an image or a high quality photo. They promote other Pages by sharing their useful content. For example, this one below from Love My Salad.
