Are you interested in creating an online Farm Store, either through Shopify, or another sales platform? As small farms and e-commerce both grow in popularity, opportunity abounds for farmers and entrepreneurs to use online platforms to sell their products, and connect with an engaged customer base.
While there are several excellent out-of-the-box software solutions on the market for small farms, they don't always meet the needs of every farm or business. Since 2013, we've worked with some of these programs selling vegetables online, and for the last 3 years have innovated with the Shopify platform to create our existing farm store. We can help you determine whether Shopify, or an out-of-the-box solution would be better for you, and how to begin creating an online store for your farm, or other local farmers.
We've been featured several times on Diego Footer's "Farm Small, Farm Smart" podcast, who recommends our unique online store method as an excellent way to market products from small farms.
Our niche is Shopify, and we've created a suite of apps, logistical processes, automated workflows, integrated platform solutions, macro-enabled spreadsheets, templates, and non-conventional solutions to build a farm store that is efficient, competitive in a modern e-commerce climate, and yet suitable to the unique demands of selling local farm products to a local customer base.
Some of the services we can provide include:
*Third party apps from Shopify's app store that we use to run our store
*Theme customizations unique to selling local produce
*Efficient fulfillment systems and the hardware/ software combos we use for them
*Our custom developed solution to offer a 100% customizable subscription program (editable CSA) through Shopify.
*How to create a mobile app for your online store with no out-of-pocket development cost
*Macro enabled spreadsheets to utilize Shopify's reports for ordering from multiple farms, and creating curated farm boxes
*Learn how we've integrated multiple online platforms to sync our orders with efficient delivery route planning, and instant customer delivery notification and tracking, with a local pickup option
*How to create workflows to automate many routine store tasks WITHOUT paying for Shopify Plus, and direct access to the code for our workflows.
*...and much more!
