Recently the Amplo team exhibited at the Cheshire Ag Trade Fair in Knutsford, which is the first agricultural show for us in a very long time.

To say the team was happy to get out and about would be an understatement.

The show attracted over 2,500 farmers where it was free to attend, and we spoke to people from all parts of the country, from all different walks of life.

Diversification

A hot topic of conversation was diversification, specifically a lot of mention on glamping pods and holiday lets.

With over half of UK farms having diversified, it’s no wonder it was mentioned a lot at an agricultural show.

Have you read our post on the opportunity that is available for farms diversifying to holiday lets?

What was on at the agricultural show?

Machinery dealerships, surveyors, vets and professional services were just a few of the businesses there.

There were lots of competitions all around from winning branded goodies to gin and gilets. We offered visitors the chance to win a 3L bottle of whiskey, which to no surprise received a lot of interest.

We also had lots of very delicious cupcakes home-made by our talented Marketing Manager, Sheena, which both exhibitors and visitors enjoyed.

A word from Amy

Our Head of Agriculture, Amy, had a few words to say about her experience at the show:

“It was great to exhibit at the Cheshire Ag Trade Fair and it was lovely seeing some familiar faces and putting new faces to names from people that I’ve connected with through the pandemic.

From the quick hello’s in passing to the in-depth discussions about business and personal, it was nice to just have in-person conversations!

We’re very much looking forward to doing some more shows and this was a great way for us to start off.”
