Starting the new year strong, Lee Rain will be on the road this January and February, participating in agricultural trade shows and conventions across the Mid-Atlantic region. Having already exhibited at the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (January 10-12) and the Long Island Agricultural Forum (January 10-11), you will see Lee Rain at these upcoming shows:
Those attending these shows should plan to visit the Lee Rain booth to register for Lee Rain’s new online store (www.ShopLeeRain.com) and receive a show-specific coupon code for additional savings on the already discounted pricing.
Lee Rain released its Drip Irrigation Catalog this week. Products include clamps, drip fittings, fertilizer injection pumps, filters, insert fittings, layflat hose, pressure regulator valves and PVC fittings, making Lee Rain “Your Drip Irrigation Solution.”
Lee Rain is also introducing the NEW! Bio360 Biodegradable & Compostable Mulch Film. Made of Mater-Bi®, Bio360 completely disappears without a trace and without leaving any toxic residues in the soil. It is an environmentally efficient alternative to traditional plastic mulch films. At the end of the season, the Bio360 does not need to be removed—the temperature, humidity, and microorganisms in the ground turn the Bio360 into water and carbon dioxide. The Bio360 has the same properties and benefits as plastic mulch films, but with no negative impacts on the environment and no removal, recycling or landfill costs.
Lee Rain has launched its very own Online Store, providing yet another resource for our valued customers to conveniently order their irrigation parts and equipment.
When touring the Lee Rain Online Store, you will see products from the brands you know, including but not limited to Wade Rain, Travis/Rainway, Bermad, Amiad, and Rainbird, all available to you by the company you have grown to trust.
The Lee Rain Online Store will be updated regularly—based on our inventory, the time of year, current trends, and of course, customer demand. As an incentive to shop the Lee Rain Online Store, we are offering a discount on orders of $250 or more. Visit our store today.
On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, the Fiocchi Family was honored with the Distinguished Service Award for their dedication and support of New Jersey’s agriculture and for the contributions of Lee Rain, Inc. to improving the life of Atlantic County residents. This award was presented by Dennis Levinson, County Executive and Jerome Irick, President of the Atlantic County Board of Agriculture at their annual Board meeting.
The Fiocchi Family, with Lee “Butch” Fiocchi, Jr., Lee Fiocchi, III, and Todd
Fiocchi and their families in attendance, was recognized for its long history in
agriculture. Having established Lee Rain, Inc. in 1946, they continue their commitment to service, three generations later, by helping customers achieve their goals and realize a new vision of how our growing world can thrive—now and far into the future.

Titled “Vegetables From A to Z”, the article explains how Cassaday Farms has grown from 70 acres to an enterprise that markets 40 different vegetables—from asparagus to zucchini—on approximately 2,500 acres, thanks in part to T-L Irrigation.
Cassaday Farms is a long-time customer of Lee Rain, going back to the first generation of Fiocchi’s. This strong business relationship was the basis for George Cassaday Jr. choosing to be one of the first of Lee Rain’s customers to take advantage of our AgManagement Strategies, utilizing Plant-Triggered Irrigation.
Regarding the seven T-L center pivots Cassaday Farms had at the time of publication, George Jr. states, “We’ve had very little trouble with T-L units and even if we do have a problem, Lee Rain, which is our dealer in Vineland, New Jersey, has come out right away and taken care of it.” Recently, Lee Rain installed two more T-L center pivots at Cassaday Farms.
T-L Irrigation Company Recognizes Lee Rain, Inc.
for Outstanding Sales Achievement in 2016
Lee Rain, Inc., one of the largest irrigation solutions providers on the East Coast, recently received the Gold Award for 2016 from the T-L Irrigation Company, the exclusive manufacturer of hydrostatically powered, continuous-move center pivot irrigation systems.
Lee Rain has been a T-L Irrigation Company dealer since 1982, when Dave Thom, Co-Owner and Vice President of T-L, convinced Lee Rain to return to the pivot business. After previously working with three other traditional electric center pivot companies that did not meet Lee Rain’s standards for service and value, Lee Rain agreed to find out what made T-L different. Even water distribution, low maintenance costs, and operator safety made the decision easy. Lee Rain has sold only T-L ever since.
“T-L is without a doubt the most precise center pivot on the market,” states Todd Fiocchi, Vice President of Operations at Lee Rain. “Because of its continuous move, instead of the traditional start and stop, it offers the most efficient way of applying water by a center pivot. T-L is truly ‘Like No Other’.”
In recognizing sales performance, T-L’s top performing dealers could reach three award levels: gold, silver or bronze, depending on their achievement throughout the year. Lee Rain is honored to accept the Gold Award for 2016, having proudly achieved numerous Bronze and Silver Awards since 2005.
“This Gold Award is a true reflection of our business philosophy at Lee Rain,” explains Lee Fiocchi, President of Lee Rain. “At Lee Rain, we focus on building relationships with our customers by working with them to determine their needs and offering solutions that allow for long lasting partnerships and create overall value. When a T-L center pivot from Lee Rain is part of the solution, our customers benefit from a reliable experience, all while achieving the best return on their investment.”
When it comes to being prepared, early planning can make a good season a great season. The same is true for your budget. The Lee Rain Early Order Drip Bundle Program provides an all-inclusive offering to help you maximize your budget and get a jump start for next year.
Deadline is January 15, 2017.
