Harvest New England Ag Marketing Conference & Trade Show

Johnny’s (Maine-based) Massachusetts Sales Reps, Ken Fine and Liz MacKinnon, recently attended the 2013 Harvest New England Ag Marketing Conference & Trade Show. Held Wednesday, February 27–Thursday, February 28, 2013 at the Sturbridge Host Hotel in Sturbridge, Ken and Liz made the 4-hour drive from Johnny’s offices in Winslow, Maine.

While exhibiting over the course of two days, Ken and Liz spoke with growers from all across New England, including Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, as well as with customers from the New York region.
 

 

At the Johnny’s booth, we enjoyed giving a lot of Jang Clean Seeder and Quick-Cut Greens Harvester tool demonstrations for interested attendees. People love seeing these tools in action!
 
 

The focus of the conference zeroed in on the subject of marketing. Senior VP of Marketing at Cabot Creamery, Roberta MacDonald, was featured as the Conference Keynote Speaker. According to the conference website, “[I]f you're a grower, value-added producer, new farmer, farm store manager, farmer’s market manager, ag service provider, or just interested in agriculture, this is the agricultural conference for you!” The Conference offered over 25 workshops on marketing, social media, agritourism, financing, and much more.
