FarmLink is an easy date for a farmer. They can facilitate access to current customers and open us up to clients we never would have thought of. We have sold a lot of product through the years through this easy-to-use system.

Creating Community through Food

 

 

West Michigan FarmLink was started with one thing in mind... facilitating the connection between local farms and restaurants. Our farmers and producers post their products and prices (that's right, the farmers set their prices!) on our website. Chefs order over the weekend. Once the sales cycle closes, the farmers package specific to the buyer. They then deliver to FarmLink, we sort everything per order and deliver. Easy peasy! If you prefer, you can pick up your order at World Headquarters, where we have a happy hour for our farmers, chefs and foodie friends.
