2013 Oklahoma State Fair
Garden Anywhere Box had a booth at the Oklahoma State Fair this year. We were located in the Oklahoma Expo Building along with other Made in Oklahoma items. We were lucky to be located down from Head Country BBQ and across from Okarche Cinnamon Rolls.
Not a bad place to be. 🙂
We were surprised and grateful to receive a major award from the fair. Garden Anywhere Box won an award for the “Most Unique Product”! We were also featured on a local television station during our days at the fair. Channel 43, “Rise and Shine” asked to do an interview with us. We had to get up at dark-thirty to be at the fair extra early for our “close-up.”
We got to talk to so many nice people. One of the best things about our business is talking to people about actually being successful at gardening. We see their faces light up when they realize that they, too, can actually grow vegetables. It is so worth the long hours each day.
Because our boxes are portable, we were able to move one of our big jalapeno pepper plants to the fair to show that the boxes actually do work!
Every day, before we would leave for the fair, I’d go out and do a daily garden harvest to bring with us. Some people could not believe that we actually grew all of the veggies let alone picked them every morning to bring.
Someone asked Lane if he went to Walmart to buy the veggies and bring to the fair. Lane said, “No. I didn’t have to.”
