“Eat local!” is a sentiment that continues to gain strength. The challenge for farmers, chefs and foodies alike, is the distribution of our local food. Tackling this problem means reenergizing our once vibrant regional food system.
CropUps is designed to facilitate the meeting of people in central places to exchange goods. It offers chefs a simple answer that is driven by the farmers they know, inviting both to link arms in an effort to bolster our local food system. CropUps harnesses the efficiency of modern technology to recreate a more human exchange that allows us all to know and enjoy the hands that work to feed us.
Now in our second year, we are ready to introduce CropUps to other regions and welcome your suggestions in making it easier to move food from local farms to local tables in your area. Please contact us with any questions or suggestions as to how to improve the CropUps experience.
