Westcountry Social Media Review 2015

Our custom designed trade stand attracted many visitors and gave us a chance to catch up with old customers and make connections with new customers. We had some fantastic feedback from everyone who visited our trade stand at each trade show. ZLC Energy told us that they were recommending our “beautiful stall” to every one at Expo West. The Exploding Bakery and Little Pod were both very impressed with our “great looking stand” that was called one of the “best looking stands” at the Source Trade Show. Canara Farm. The produce from our Organic Farm at Mylor went from strength to strength. We had great a great response to every Canara Farm related tweet. Even Dutch based Global Green House news outlet Horti Daily picked up on our Heritage Cherry Tomato mix. The stunning varieties of tomatoes were impressing customers from throughout the South West, the team behind Cornwall Hour went so far as to say “they look like a work of art”.
