After receiving hundreds of submissions to our photo contest, we wanted to share with you some of our favorites. These photos may not have won a prize, but they still stood out and we felt that we needed to recognize them. We smiled, we laughed and we were awed by some of these great pictures and the stories we received with them. There are seven superlative categories and we selected a winner for each. These customers will each receive a dozen pair of our Growers Supply Dot Grip Gloves! We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did!
It’s that time of year again! The photos came pouring in for our 2013 Fall Photo Contest and we’re here to announce the winners! As always, the quality and quantity of photos we received was large, but we were finally able to narrow it down to a top winner and runners-up. We loved seeing the submissions from our customers—from chickens and cows, to high tunnels and greenhouses, you all sent us some great photos and we love seeing our products in action. If you didn’t submit photos this time around, be sure to do so during our next photo contest. We’d love to see what you have to share! But for now, read on and see how our top finishers are using our products!
Starting a new growing business can be a fun endeavor, but the upfront costs can be quite overwhelming. In order for the business to start making money, it is important to make cost-effective decisions about what you will purchase, who you will hire and more. Sometimes, adding to the appearance of your business for the right price is a great way to bring in customers initially, while still making a good investment in the long run. This was the case with the Mark and Kay Halla who chose to purchase a beautiful greenhouse at a low cost for their new business.
Getting a new business off the ground can actually be the easy part of being a business owner if you find yourself in the same position as Michael Taube of Dove Creek Gardens, Inc. At the start, it is easy to accommodate for the small number of orders you are taking, as you normally carry only a few products. But what happens when business starts booming? Taube found a great solution that helped him and his family stay on top of all of their new orders, as well as expand their product line.
Greenhouses are a wonderful tool for growing flowers and produce, but more and more educators are realizing that they have a second benefit that can help children grow into well-rounded, health-conscious adults. Using greenhouses as part of schools’ curriculums is increasing in popularity, as people are becoming more curious about where their food comes from. By adding a greenhouse to school property, children will be able to get out of the classroom and into the fresh air to develop skills that will help them lead healthy, responsible lives.
The beauty of greenhouses is that they can be as big as any large commercial grower may need, or as small as any backyard hobby grower needs to grow fresh, healthy produce within the comfort of her own home and yard. The latter is the case for Pat Raunick, a Growers Supply customer who purchased a greenhouse in order raise her own produce and to create an activity she could enjoy with her grandchildren.
