Getting people first to know about onions and then to buy onions is what Brennan Sobiech’s YouTube video is all about. Sobiech is the creative genius behind the https://youtu.be/YceHKJjDgxU upbeat and downright sexy drone-filmed video (set to no less than Luke Bryan’s “That’s What Country Is”), and he is also son of Ed Sobiech, owner of Green Valley Onion Co. in New Hampton, NY.
Here’s what OnionBusiness.com takes away from these artistic endeavors: American farmers are shown to be the stitches that hold our nation’s fabric together. What’s more, red onion harvest is presented as a party, one heck of a celebration – as it should be.
Another of Sobiech’s videos, this one at https://youtu.be/3WSPeP3AoSk, shows the harvest of yellows and is just as catchy, with superstar Luke Bryan advising us to wear our boots to “kick the dust up.”
Props, Brennan! That’s great marketing!
In addition, Tom Minkus has posted a Goshen, NY, onion harvest video on You Tube at https://youtu.be/Ej_nisJo_1E, using music from Montgomery Gentry to get the message across. What do we think about that? Love it, that’s what.
USA Onions has a professionally produced video as well, posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7Y42IdEhgw&feature=youtu.be. Chronicling the effort that goes into raising onions from “Seed to Harvest,” this 9.5-minute production gives a wealth of information with excellent videography.
And our buddies at the Idaho Farm Bureau also have a video at You Tube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CLDpOsfkZ8&feature=youtu.be, which features Shay Myers and Owyhee Produce’s onions. The Farm Bureau works hard to educate people on the big picture of Idaho agriculture, and showcasing onions is a high tide that floats all the boats.
