Our Mission History

We are a team of small producers who have been running Yourfarmstand since 2010. As producers, we know the importance of making our local food systems more sustainable and being part of the farm-to-plate movement. Our local market in Charlotte VT has run every week for three years and is vibrant and successful all year round. This experience makes us one of the most experienced providers of online markets today.

We are dedicated to the idea of direct sales from farm to customers and recognize that not everyone can make the times of farmers markets or commitments to CSAs. Yourfarmstand provides a great opportunity to expand access to local foods: there’s no reason why anyone should not enjoy local produce!

In our effort to promote our mission, Yourfarmstand now supports other communities’ plans to strengthen their local food supply chain. These include online-only markets, traditional farmers markets, and food hubs. In addition, we support institutionally connected markets like the one at Middlebury College and another through the HR Wellness Program at Vermont Country Store.

Let us work with you next.

History Your Farm Stand

Yourfarmstand enables consumers to buy fresh local food directly from local independent farmers and producers in one simple transaction. Participating farmers choose what to sell and how much to charge, just like a farmers market, but they only pick and deliver what they’ve sold, saving them time and money. Customers can order anytime from any number of farmers, pay in a single transaction, and pick up all their purchases at a convenient location. They get access to local and organic food through the convenience of their computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Yourfarmstand can enable your community to support local independent growers and help build a strong local food network through this new and exciting way of getting food from farm to plate.

At Yourfarmstand, your market is part of an interconnected but independent network of online markets. Customers currently are able to shop in any open market and farmers can sell in multiple markets from a single account. With three years experience in supporting online farmers markets, Yourfarmstand is a tried and proven system. In addition, we have lots of plans for Yourfarmstand and we want you to be a part of it!
