>The weather is warming up in Nebraska, and March is almost here. March is not only madness in the college basketball world, its also madness in my life! I already have grocery store demo’s, shows, and production days lined up in March, so it’s time for me to get out of winter hybrination and get ready to rumble.
With 2010 in the books, it’s time to focus on 2011. Decisions have to be made about production numbers, product re-pricing, marketing, and sales for the 2011 year. There is no doubt about it, decisions will have to be made on how Ely Farms can most effectively price, market, and sell our products this upcoming year.
I have had some exciting ideas and plans for 2011, and they include:
1) Setting Ely Farms up at an additional Farmers Market. I would like Ely Farms to have a stand at Farmers Markets in both Lincoln and Omaha on Saturday mornings.
2) Promote Ely Farms as an agro-tourism destination in Nebraska. In 2010, Ely Farms had many groups visit the farm and take a tour of our production facility and asparagus and pepper fields, and I would like to be pro-active in getting more groups out to the farm this upcoming year.
The Huskers have a home basketball game against Oklahoma State tonight. Go Big Red! Could a win tonight be the start of a 3 or 4 game winning streak for the Huskers and real March Madness in Nebraska?????
