Shortlisted in Farming Digital Awards
We are delighted and amazed to be shortlisted in the British Farming Awards 2015 Digital Innovator Category.
When I say amazed I really do mean this because you have to remember this is a business run by 2 old dinosaurs who when they started their first business bought an Amstrad with 2 floppy 5 inch disks and that was state of the art technology!! Oh those were the days! Very few people used email, there was no e-commerce and definitely no Twitter or Facebook so fancy us being shortlisted the digital awards!
May be now Farmer Rob will forgive me the evenings spent on Facebook and Twitter, the photos uploaded to Pinterest and the video content for Youtube. The days away from the farm on WordPress, SEO and digital training courses and the hours spent at the computer when he wanted me to clean out the pigs (or pull the plough)!!!
A huge thanks to all our visitors, customer and delegates who share their photos and let us use pictures of their children in our posts and on our website and contribute to our social media, without you our pages would be just pictures of someone doing a job!!
Thanks also to the fabulous team at Discover Carmarthenshire and the now defunct SWWTP & Gallu for all the training and support over the last few years.
One thing we’ve learnt coming from another business sector is that in farming and tourism businesses benefit by working together and we are lucky to be part of some fabulous networks inclduing Farm Stay and the CTA.
Now we just can’t wait to ditch the wellies and waterproofs for an evening and have a Farmtastic time at the awards ceremony in October!
