Behind The Scenes at Watkins
At J.R. Watkins we love sharing who we are, our favorite products and the rich history that shapes us.
So, last week, we invited a few blogger friends out to our hometown of Winona, Minn. for a behind-the-scenes peek at J.R. Watkins.
A fun group of bloggers joined us to learn more about our history, see our facilities, test new products and explore our town:
Micaela from Mindful Momma
Lori from Groovy Green Livin
Kiersten from The Type A Housewife
Jodi from Mom’s Favorite Stuff
Jennifer from Savoring the Thyme
We started out at the J.R. Watkins headquarters where we met staff and took a tour of the facilities and the factory.
Here’s a fun photo of the bloggers in their tour garb.
There are so many things to see in the plant including: product lines, vanilla bean presses, percolators and more! Here are a few photo highlights of the tour.
We stayed in a beautifully restored mansion in town called the Alexander Mansion. After the facilities tour, we headed there for a little R&R.
The next day the bloggers had a chance to try out several products, including a few new lines we’re very excited to introduce!
The ladies were fabulous, the weather was fall-like and we enjoyed spending time with them as they experienced another side of Watkins.
Keep your eyes open for a few new products that will launch in the next few months!
Disclosure: Participating bloggers were provided travel, lodging and J.R. Watkins products as part of this Behind The Scenes Tour at J.R. Watkins Headquarters.
