|Description||The Global Network of Sustainable Farms|
|Seed, 10/2012 |
Farmhopping is a global web platform that bridges the gap between farms and city people who are interested in sustainable farming.
Our main goal is to support small sustainable farms and communities by giving them an opportunity to access additional funding, launch natural products into new markets and converse with a pool of dedicated, supportive customers. Through our unique structure, one of collaborative consumption and crowdfunding, we solve two of the main problems faced by farms: finding and reaching customers and securing financing. The platform allows farmers to “share” their farm with users (we call them farmhoppers!). We help farmhoppers channel financial contributions and know-how in supporting worldwide sustainable farming. We help them become part of the farms’ everyday life and improve it even without their physical presence onsite.
