As the holiday season approaches it is a fitting time to reflect on the past year and those who have helped shape our business. It is an opportunity to thank the friends and customers who help our business and make our jobs a pleasure all year long. It is the people in the communities we serve who make being in business such an enjoyment.
Our business is a source of pride to us and the growth and sustainability of Emerge Ag Solutions has been a direct result of our passion for the agriculture industry and our commitment to farmers. Over the years we have witnessed many great people working very hard to operate successful farms. Our current presence in both farming and the ag retail sector have allowed us to understand the trials and triumphs of individuals who are dedicated to producing a great crop year over year.
Every farm has many working parts and requires many different roles to be filled. We are thrilled that 98 percent of farms are still family-owned and operated! We feel that there are no roles on a farm that should ever be overlooked. Every individual is relevant to the success of that farm.
The recent formation of our new subdivision, CONNECT, is allowing us to show our sincere appreciation for all producers. We will have many initiatives moving forward to support the agriculture industry and educate both growers and consumers, in addition to having fun and celebrating the people of agriculture! Our long-term goal is to CONNECT globally WITH Agriculture, THROUGH Agriculture, FOR agriculture and BECAUSE of Agriculture!
There have been numerous ups and downs throughout the past year as with any other; nonetheless, as we are nearing the completion of 2015, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued business and send our best wishes to you and your families.
We gratefully think of those who have enabled us to grow. Whatever the role is, we want to say thank you! You are making a difference! You are a reason that your farm is thriving! You do more than what you sometimes have been given credit for and you are significant to the agriculture industry moving forward.
With these thoughts in our hearts we say: Thank you and may your holiday season and the New Year be filled with much joy, happiness, and success. We look forward to working with you in the coming year and hope our business relationship continues for many years to come.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from all of us here at Emerge Ag Solutions!
