Harry Edwards has joined Rimol Greenhouse Systems as a sales and tech support rep in the midwestern region. Fittingly, Harry's passion is growing local economies and he believes this is most effectively done by improving the profitability of the farmers who grow and sell locally.
Harry grew up on a farm in Lancaster County PA and learned the values of hard work and dedication early, working in tobacco and hay crops for a neighboring farmer. He raised his family there and passed those values along to his two talented children, Cameron and Afton.
After attending Millersville University and Penn State, and building careers in industrial production and maintenance, and in international sales and logistics, Harry revisited his farming roots.
Harry apprenticed with an Amish farmer growing 20 acres of certified organic vegetables. He then began a career as a market farmer. For the last several years, Harry has worked as a farm manager and consultant, and as a high tunnel salesman. In each case, his focus has been designing and implementing efficient production systems, mastering season extension techniques, and creatively capturing local market opportunities.
As a Rimol representative, Harry is motivated to work with growers to help them to meet their own goals, implementing the tools, techniques and structures that are most appropriate to their management style and budget.
In his spare time, Harry enjoys hiking and hunting, photography, live music and dancing, traveling, cooking and farmers markets.
