In the spring of 2006, we loaded up the family mini van with cases of shrink wrapped CowPots. We drove around to local hardware stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York to introduce CowPots. “Cow, what?” they asked. There were a lot of confused and befuddled looks when people learned that we were selling pots made from poo.
While there were some early adopters, everything would change for our start up business in January 2007. Just months prior, Mike Rowe and his film crew were on the farm filming an episode of Dirty Jobs. The ‘poo pots’ show debuted on Discovery Channel in the new year and that was the beginning of marketing CowPots nationally. People from all around the world were so intrigued by the show that our website crashed from too many visits (those were the old days).
Following that initial feature of CowPots on TV, we have been able to show off CowPots on Martha Stewart, Today’s Garden with Joe Lamp’l, My Fox Boston with Must be the Milk. There was also rumor of CowPots being mentioned on Shark Tank. Enjoy some of these video clips of CowPots on TV from the past 10 years!
