When we talk about Crowdfarming as a programme, we are referring to our way of helping people to find fresh, homegrown produce local to them. It's the perfect programme for restaurants, cafes & food businesses looking to source produce locally and responsibly, connect with their community, and do something fun and different.
For growers and artisans, it's a way of finding business; of sharing homegrown and/or homemade produce and products which might otherwise go to waste.
By way of championing the sharing economy, the crowdfarming transaction process as well as value and delivery of goods or services offered is entirely up to those involved. You might agree upon a fair price for your freshly picked lemons or simply, swap 5 for a cup of coffee! We facilitate and encourage positive communication between our members but also welcome you to contact us at email@example.com to help things run smoothly.
How to Crowdfarm within our marketplace:
- Post a new listing as an announcement and chose the crowdfarming category.
- This listing will act as a call out to our community and help you find growers near you who might have home-grown/ home-made goods to offer.
- Other members of The Crowdfarm will have the option to make you an offer via your listing page.
- You will be notified via email every time an offer is made on your listing.
The Programme in Action:
Back in 2013, we called on local growers and foodies all over New South Wales to crowdfarm a 200 person feast at Sydney's Opera House, hosted by TEDxSydney. See how it all went down below.
If you represent a restaurant, cafe or food business, why not try crowdfarming here as a revolutionary way to source local produce?
In 2019, Sydney's North Bondi Fish restaurant did just that and our registered growers delivered chef Jesse McTavish with ingredients for his winter menu. From home-made honey and sea-salt, to a multitude of home-grown herbs, spices, salad greens and veg.
