Things are always changing around here, every season has new and different things going on. This month we are launching a new ordering system. Our products are now easily ordered from our storefront by using the button on the right.
FarmMatch is a system designed to connect real food buyers with real food sellers. They provide an ever improving storefront platform, including secure credit card checkout with very competitve rates, to help farmers put their products out where consumers can easily purchase them. That connection is helping hundreds of farmers improve their sales and is helping many hundreds of consumers find healthful, wholesome food. Follow this link to read their Mission statement and what FarmMatch is all about.
We are very excited to partner with FarmMatch and it’s creators/designers. We know founder Max Kane personally and can vouch for the fact that this farmer/consumer connection platform is designed by real people in America (you won’t talk to someone in India if you call) who actually use the system themselves. Max operates a buyers club wherein he connects farmers from Minnesota with consumers in the Chicago area. As the operation has grown the group has added new features and functions constantly to answer the needs of the broad spectrum of farmers and consumers out there.
For example, we have several pricing structures in our storefront to allow us to have an open store for anyone who wants to order, but also have a menu for our Farm Exchange members with the products and prices that are unique to members, and another one especially for our Dairy Herd Share owners–all in the same system. This will make it easier for you to order what we actually have, and improve our efficiency in the office (where, by the way, most farmers hate to be just by the nature of things).
We expect that, with this easy to follow set of instructions, transitioning to the new system will be smooth, but glitches happen now and then. If you have product questions, call or e-mail us. If you run into technical difficulties, e-mail support@FarmMatch.com. There are buttons to take you to our storefront on this front page, on the Products page, and on the Farm Exchange page.
Thanks for your support as we make these changes to improve our service!
