Take a Lesson from FarmTek U
Since FarmTek was founded, it’s been our goal to help make your life easier. We provide the products you need and we also have the expertise to go along with them. Over the past year, we’ve been adding to the educational resources available to you, our customers. These resources include hands-on training at our Technology Center, virtual webinars, a video library and more. If you aren’t already aware of what we have to offer, let me tell you more.
Technology Center: In the past year, we’ve built two greenhouse facilities to serve as demonstration areas to teach the public more about sustainability and locally grown produce. In our 35′ by 48′ greenhouse, we are modeling year-round, in-ground high tunnel production, as well as three different hydroponic systems. Our 80′ by 50′ greenhouse is devoted solely to hydroponic production. Attendees at our hydroponic and fodder workshops gain hands-on experience in these greenhouses.
Workshops: Speaking of workshops, our introduction to hydroponic systems workshop and our hydroponically grown fodder workshop have each been a great success. Attendees from across the country have traveled to Dyersville to see Sam in action. For more information on these workshops or to see a schedule, visit our Technology Center page.
National Account Managers: They help you through your orders, and I sure you’ve noticed how knowledgeable they are on the best solutions for your needs. This knowledge isn’t gained overnight. Our sales representatives continually attend training on our products and the industries we serve.
Webinars: Held on a weekly basis, our webinars pack in a lot of information into a short half hour. Want to learn about high tunnels or barn curtain (and many other topics), but don’t know where to start? Attend a webinar from the comfort of your personal computer. Hosted by one of National Account Managers, these webinars consist of a presentation and Q & A session. Visit our webinars page to see the schedule. Missed one you might be interested in? We also post recordings that you can watch at any time.
Video Library: Browse our website or YouTube account and you’ll see that we’ve been busy making videos. Topics include step-by-step product assembly, customer testimonials, building installations and helpful how-tos. If you prefer seeing to reading, these videos are just for you.
Success Stories: Sometimes hearing how someone else has done it is all the help you need. We’ve had many happy customers share their unique product success stories with us. Will you be one of our next success stories?
Buyer’s Guides: We’ve been busy compiling information for our collection of buyer’s guides. Whether you’re starting a backyard flock or need help picking out a new heater, we have recommendations for your situation. As always, if you’re not sure what product is best for you, our National Account Managers are available by phone or Live Help.
Whether we’re making small additions like new assembly videos or large advances like our state-of-the-art Technology Center, we always have you in mind.
