Do you direct market your products to consumers via a farm stand or other means? Is your farm's website and logo in need of a redesign? Don't even have a logo? You might be perfect for Small Farm Central's Design Make-Over service. I am not affiliated with these folks, just stumbled across this offering and wanted to pass it on to my readers, knowing how hard it can be to find the time, energy and money to develop a website, logos and materials for your farm when we're all busy running them.
Small Farm Central offers website templates and e-commerce solutions for farms who direct market to consumers. There's even a module that helps you manage CSA shares. This new "case study" program includes more than just the website and e-commerce solution. It includes logo design, stickers, banners, and more. More details straight from the Small Farm Central blog:
Following the success of the Small Farm Central premium templates, our design team will soon be offering farm-friendly custom design packages. The packages will include custom promotion for your farm, such as web site template customization, logos, brochures, stationery (letterhead, business cards, and envelopes with your logo), bumper stickers, label stickers, wooden labels for CSA crates, farm stand banners, and vehicle graphics.
For farms chosen for the case study, Small Farm Central offers a steeply discounted design rate in exchange for farmers' feedback and permission to use photos of the farm and design work on the website. Feedback about the process is also requested. Of course, that means more exposure and promotion for your farm. Sounds like a win-win! Check out the details and see if it sounds like something your farm could benefit from.
