This time last year the world was promising to open up again after 4 months of restrictions, at Emerald Green Feeds we were feeling optimistic for the remainder of the show season. Who could have predicted that a year later the world would be no further on, it has been over a year now since we attended a show and we are really missing getting out and seeing all of our lovely customers.
It’s been a funny old year, we dipped our toes in the water of online shows, it didn’t really work for us. We take huge pride in the fact at shows our products tend to sell themselves, once seen the quality shines through. It’s just not quite the same looking at pictures online.
Even without the shows, we don’t seem to have had a minute this year, maybe it’s because people have had extra time on their hands with furlough and the restrictions in place, but the phone has been ringing off the hook the emails have been coming in thick and fast. It’s great to have still had contact with our customers albeit in a slightly different way.
We’ve seen some amazing pictures of your horses on social media, we have had phenomenal responses to our online competitions, and seen some fabulous posts by our brand ambassadors. But even with all of this we have missed chatting with you all on the stand, we have missed popping into retailers and going to open days, we missed catching up with all the other stand holders at shows and events. Roll on 2022 when we will hopefully be back out and seeing the world again.
Never fear we have used this time to come up with ideas of what we can do in the future….watch this space there could be exciting things ahead!
