"Helping Farmers Direct-Sell Food Profitably!"
Our EFF Storefront For Farmers
We've made setting up a shopping cart system for farm products easy. Ours is custom programmed for selling goods of unknown variable weight. It's also designed for use by farmers, not tech people. Creating your inventory is easy to set up because we've included a product library for you. And there is nothing to download. If you need it, a website is included, but you can add the cart system on to your existing website with a simple link.
Most online storefront systems are complicated AND are not set up for selling farm products. They are intended for situations where advertised items have a set cost. And they aren't conveniently set up to handle delivery locations or home delivery.
Most small family farms sell foods where each and every food item has a different weight. They are priced by the pound and the weight is only known when the order is being assembled. Our system handles that issue with ease.
Designed With Farmers In Mind.
Our system is simple to use but with powerful automation that accommodates typical farm situations.
Our inventory system is easy to learn and quick to manage. Order handling is well organized. All orders are processed individually, but can be automatically grouped for efficient assembly and delivery for buying club situations. Home delivery is also built in for farmers who want to offer that for an added delivery fee.
Below is an illustration of some of the key features included in the EFF storefront platform.

Automate your collection of customer and prospect contact information for each neighborhood you want to target.
|Market Alone Or With Others
EFF allows you to bring other niche vendors into your account. That allows you to offer a farmers market of products to your customers without competing with each other.
Turn on credit card processing in a matter of minutes, and collect your money with a single click. Or simply opt for cash and check payments. Or have them all. It's your choice.
We tailor the cost structure to the needs of each farm. The base cost is $12.50 per month for the website builder which includes the storefront. From there, we'll discuss your situation to see what works for your business and ours.
Some farms do all their selling seasonally. Others sell throughout the year. Some have lots of small volume orders while others have relatively few orders, but with large quantities of high value items. Some sell wholesale or retail or both.
Each has different needs and puts a different load on our system. Our goal is to provide you with an economical cost structure that fits your business and your use of our system. Just tell us about your farm and we'll make a proposal in writing that will provide you with great value. Be sure to read our Farmer Testimonials for greater insight from others like you.
