In anticipation of my Greensgrow Farm winter CSA share starting up this weekend, I’ve been doing a lot of reading on CSAs. TreeHugger has an interesting post up about a new computer program called Farmigo that was designed to help farmers manage their CSA programs in more efficient, streamlined and (hopefully) profitable way:
Farmigo basically takes over the back end work for CSA programs. The company states that the system works wonders for CSAs—ordering is easy and payment is flexible, delivering is streamlined with individual packing lists and delivery routes, farmers can track their harvest yields and match their capacity with CSA demands, and it reduces costs for running the back end system.
Visit Farmigo’s site for more detailed information, an instructional video and testimonials from farmers who have used the system.
