Thank you to the Manhattan Weather Channel...

Brad & Karen Bothwell here. We own Bothwell Farms, a small independent greenhouse and farm stand with 2 locations plus we do local farmers markets. We have been following Manhattan Weather Channel for the very informative, local, up to the minute weather reports and forecasts for our area. We approached the director of operations, Dan, and asked about getting information about severe weather for the areas that we are doing markets or our permanent stands. He was able to provide us with detailed forecasts for where we would be set-up. We set up 12 or more 10x10 market tents, and severe weather could cost us thousands if we are not prepared. Due to their forecasting, we are always prepared. We asked about compensation, and he offered us a sponsorship package, which has been well received. The Manhattan Weather Channel will send out their mobile chase vehicle and do live broadcasts from our location. We see a direct increase in sales when they do a live broadcast. Definitely worth every dollar we spend with them!
