The Farm Cart

Building local food networks

What is the Farm Cart?

The Farm Cart is a FREE online platform connecting local producers and purchasers of local food.

Local Food is an essential component of community, health, and sustainability. One of our core principles is to facilitate local food markets without interfering with, or replacing, the face-to-face relationships that make local food so personal and valuable.

We make sales management easier for small-scale producers, and ordering easier for purchasers of local foods.

We at the Farm Cart are committed to supporting your family’s business. It is a joy for us to be part of your success. Likewise, if you find the Farm Cart to be a valuable tool for your business, we welcome your voluntary contribution!
