OFI 192: Online Marketing For Farmers | Simon Huntley – Author Of “Cultivating Customers: A Farmer’s Guide To Online Marketingscreen-shot-2016-09-23-at-3-55-54-pm

SHOW NOTES

Simon’s Book Is Definitely A Good Resource.  I Highly Recommend It.  For $9.99 You Just Cannot Lose:

KEY IDEAS: 

Simon Huntley is the author of Cultivating Customers: A Farmer’s Guide to Online Marketing.  This is book about the necessity of farmers, especially those in niche markets, using online marketing to build a customers base and raving fans.  In this book Simon does not just tell you why this is necessary, but he tells you how to accomplish this.screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-4-01-36-pm

I was hooked right in the introduction.  As Simon explained some of what you would learn in this book I found myself imagining new and exciting horizons for my own farm.  I was able to see the day in which I had put all the right pieces in place and was totally self-sufficient, a full time farmer.

If transitioning your life to agricultural and rural living appeals to you, this is a book that needs to be on your shelf.

OFI 191: How Is An FFA Student Teaching People About Fossils And Agriculture? | FFA SAE Edition | Riley Kienbaum | Deary High School FFAriley-kienbaum-post-image

SHOW NOTES

If You Are Interested In Finding Fossils Or Gems You Will Need Tools To Get Started!


Introducing Riley Kienbaum! 

I was contacted by Riley’s FFA Advisor, Stacy Reid.  She told me that Riley had a very unique SAE, and she thought I might be interested in it.  And, I was!

Riley’s grandfather accidentally discovered a fossil bed on their property in Northern Idaho in the 1970’s.  Since that time people have been coming from around the world to dig fossils that are in excess of 15 million years old!

Riley works on his family’s property, guiding customers, getting them the supplies they need and answering their questions.  This had led to some interesting interactions for Riley.  For example, he has had people from China at his place looking for fossils.  35 scientists from NASA came there to prepare for their next Mars Rover.  And then there is the personal side of things with kids and adults expressing their gratitude to him for his help.

Now, John Deere has offered him a scholarship and an opportunity to travel and discuss the fossils on his property as well their significance to agriculture.  Riley is involved in entrepreneurship with the $10 charge to adults to dig fossils on his property.  But this is one business that will be difficult for anyone to replicate.  Beds of 15 million year old fossils don’t come along every day

REASONS TO DONATE TO FFA:

  • Rural Communities will rely on entrepreneurship in the future for population growth and job creation.  The FFA is a major catalyst to that entrepreneurial growth.
  • Farmers, ranchers and those working in agriculture give the rest of America incredible amounts of freedom because the search for food is as simple as going to the grocery store:

OFI 189: Discovering A Niche Market For Ag | Fair Play Brand Agricultural Clothing screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-9-58-07-pm

SHOW NOTES

If  You Are Interested In Following Janice’s Lead, You Had Better Read:

KEY IDEAS: 

Episode# 189 features a really innovative entrepreneur.  Janice Morrow reluctantly refers to herself as an entrepreneur, but listening to her talk there is no doubt.screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-9-58-26-pm

The story of Fair Play Brand clothing is one of the traditional ways that a business was discovered.  Going to the fair to watch her daughter and speaking to other parents involved in the fair led to an “aha moment.”  It was at this moment that Janice realized that there were several clever sayings that fair people would like such as “hog wild”, “on the lamb” and the less traditional “you goat girl!”

At the same time Janice was realizing this she realized that 4h and FFA people, especially at fairs, needed their own line of clothing to help them identify with each other and share what they all had in common.  Fair Play Brand Swag was born.  For a year Janice researched the production of her shirts and other products.  When she finally hit the market at a fair they sold like hotcakes.

Now Janice is expanding into more products.  And she is researching ways to help FFA students around the country use her business model and shirts to start their own businesses doing the same thing.
