The sharpening of tools used in the production and preparation of agricultural products is undeniably agricultural. We provide a much needed service to both the farmers and shoppers.

Sharpeners at Farmers’ Markets are a tradition all across America.

Special Sharpening Events

Posted on March 9, 2014 in: Uncategorized

We have some openings on weekends to do Sharpening Events at Retailers and Farmer’s Markets. It’s a great way to attract customers to your business. We have done sharpening at Garden Centers, Gourmet Cookware Stores Green Grocers. While I sharpen customer’s stuff, they shop at your business.  Businesses we have sharpened at report an increase in sales.

We have a smaller compact sharpening setup to use in retail shops.

There is no charge to the sponsoring retailer for this service.
