Billed as the world’s first virtual farmer’s market, the website connects its customers directly to the source of their food: small scale, sustainable farms that offer a wide selection of goods and artisanal foods. AmericasFarmstand.com creates a one-to-one connection between consumers and its network of small, family-run farms vetted by the America’s Farmstand team for over 30 criterion, including growing methods, sustainability practices, biodiversity; fair treatment of workers and absence of chemical inputs.
Craving fresh caught lobster from Maine? Organic heirloom tomato sauce from Reedley, California? Succulent peaches from Georgia? Goat cheese from the Hudson Valley? AmericasFarmstand.com offers these choices and so many more. Founded by former investment banker Todd Greenfield, who grew up in a farming community in Southeastern Connecticut, America’s Farmstand is helping people who value the health benefits of honest, farm fresh food. Whether they’re in cities, the suburbs, or in remote rural areas, America’s Farmstand will bring the best artisan food and produce from local farms delivered straight to their door.
“In my career in finance, I travelled all across the US, and having grown up in a farming community, I frequently found myself inventing reasons to visit farms, take farm tours, and to talk with farmers. I was increasingly struck by how much was lost, when food goes from a farm into the big, industrial food system. I found myself asking farmers, ’What if?’ What if there was a way to get your vegetables, fruits, cheeses, organic meats and other fresh foods directly to the people who want them, rather than having them lose freshness travelling to—and sitting in—warehouses for days before being transported to supermarkets,” said Todd Greenfield, president of America’s Farmstand. With the interconnectedness of the online environment, improved efficiencies in door-to-door shipping, and a growing awareness that we are over-exposing ourselves and our families to dangerous ingredients found in processed foods, the time is ideal for a solution that makes it easy to eat fresh everyday—AmericasFarmstand.com.
With nationwide home and office delivery, America’s Farmstand lets you shop for farm fresh food and other artisanal food items on its website, place your order, and receive your shipment right to your door, absolutely fresh—no warehouse in between.
