Photo Blog: FarmTek Customers Spread Holiday Cheer

This photo blog comes to you courtesy of Scott and Jennifer Cockroft, who submitted some very interesting photos to our 2011 Photo Contest. Here is their story:

Holiday light display

My husband has been using your products for several years. He has a hobby of creating wonderful Christmas light displays, which have grown considerably over the years. One of our favorite parts of the display is our “dancing” Christmas tree. It is synchronized to music, which makes it appear that it is dancing.

There are over 380 strings of lights that hang from the top, which require a radio tower and guy wires to hold them up through the winter. The guy wires are made from your Galvanized Cable and turnbuckles. He experimented with different ways to erect the tree (flag pole with rope failed miserably) and once he found out how well your product, Galvanized Cable, worked, he kept adding height to the tree. It eventually got to 40 feet! We have a lot of onlookers that park outside of our house and many curious guests that want to know how everything is constructed. To keep this heavy tower and its many lights stable, my husband also uses your earth anchors to hold the guy wires tight. We never have to worry about any sagging issues or breakage. They have by far been the best product he has found to consistently provide the level of support needed to ensure no Christmas catastrophes occur! Knowing the tree is securely anchored alleviates any fear of it blowing over or falling down.

I’ve enclosed pictures of the tree being constructed, which clearly show your products, as well as pictures of it lit up at night. We spend about two months getting everything ready for the display and it stays up until New Year’s Day. We have received a lot of feedback that the tree is one of the most liked parts of the display. We have ordered your products by phone and email and we have received them quickly. Customer service has been great!
