Farmigo is a small startup with a big mission: to empower people to create a better way to eat, by creating farm-to-neighborhood access to fresh food, benefiting local farmers and bypassing supermarkets. Farmigo cuts out the supermarket and brings farms to neighborhoods. They looked at geography and saw that it needed to be more connected. To create more of a community they connect the farmer to the neighbors, neighbors to each other, and everyone to their food.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) are sustainable business models that allow individuals to buy directly from farms. Typically they can pick it up from the farm, or from a local pick up location. Farmigo is based out of Brooklyn, NY with a food team in San Francisco, CA, and developers in Tel Aviv, Isreal. “For us, a day well spent includes plenty of time talking at the table, sharing our thoughts and ideas over a meal. We’re united by our love of fresh food – dark greens and earthy tubers, fresh eggs, soft cheese, dripping, nectarous peaches – grown sustainably by small farms and produced by local artisans. When it came down to it, we couldn’t think of a better way to express that love than by working our hardest to bring all that bounty straight to your communities.”
