Last week I returned from Maryland where I was attending the Natural Products Expo East. This huge trade show was packed with over 1,000 companies big and small showcasing natural and healthy living products.
I spoke on a panel about sharing the organic story online. I explained how I use my website and the various types of social media to engage the public. I was so honored to be asked to sit on this panel along with the Organic Trade Association, the Kitchn.com, and Amy’s Kitchen. Afterwards I was thinking how I can reach more people, so I decided to add another social media platform to mix, Snapchat, you can find me getting snappy under the username: quarterafarm
At Expo East I was excited to see the show floor teeming with certified organic products but I was even more thrilled to see numerous North Bay companies displaying their organic products. Before I got to the show I figured I wouldn’t see many Bay Area products because, well the show was on the east coast. Boy was I wrong, every time I turned around there was a familiar business like Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery, Guayaki, Annie’s, EO Products, and so many more. These companies reach far and wide across the country but they continue to base their business in the North Bay.
