At FarmTek, we’re more than just a catalog. Since 1979, FarmTek has expanded from a regional, two-person operation to one with corporate headquarters and sales call center located in South Windsor, Connecticut and a manufacturing and distribution center located in Dyersville, Iowa. This growth has allowed us to become a one-stop shop for agricultural needs, serving more than 300,000 happy customers worldwide.
Justin Dunham – Marketing Content Specialist
As the Marketing Content Specialist here, one of my main responsibilities is producing content for and managing our blog. I grew up in a small town in southwestern New Hampshire, where I spent my entire life until a move to Connecticut shortly after I graduated college. I attended Franklin Pierce University, where I earned my degree in Marketing, and I began working here at FarmTek in 2014.
My overall background in agriculture was rather limited before I joined the FarmTek team. However, working for a company with such a diverse product offering has really sparked my interest and expanded my industry knowledge. I’ve discovered that there are many ways that we here at FarmTek can help improve your farm, and I do my best to share that useful information in each blog that I write.
Ashley Madore – Events and Communications Specialist
As the Events & Communications Specialist, I am responsible for planning and booking every trade show we attend, as well as planning and coordinating each CEA School that we host here in Connecticut. I earned my degree in Ornamental Horticulture and Environmental Design from Delaware Valley College in Pennsylvania, and after working in various florist positions, I decided to look for a change of pace and accepted a position here at FarmTek. I have been with the company since 2013, and considering that my passion has always been split between event planning and the horticulture industry, I can now say that I have truly found my dream job.
Chris Machnich – Copy Writer
As a copy writer here I’m responsible for writing much of the copy at FarmTek. Whether it’s for the catalog, here on the blog, in brochures, advertisements or anything in-between, you can find my work almost anywhere. I grew up in the Connecticut River Valley just up the road from a number of farms, and I’ve always appreciated nature and spending time outdoors. I’ve been with FarmTek since the beginning of 2014, and when I’m not in the office, you can find me fishing – especially once the lakes have frozen over – exploring the various trails here in Connecticut, playing hockey or reading.
