Welcome to Local Farmer, where our goal is `Bringing Small Farms to the Table´
Smaller scale farmers across the Globe are increasingly more aware of the importance of good
agricultural and manufacturing practices, and taking the initiative to meet the increasing demand of
government regulations like the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), and audit certification
requirements of procurers. And most importantly, to supply food to their customers that has been grown
and handled to prevent contamination.
At Local Farmer, we want to offer valuable educational experiences and tools for small-scale farmers to
develop and verify implementation of Personalized Food Safety plans, and to act as a "bridge of
assurance" for the purposes of marketing their food safety progress to procurers, local food
aggregators, and new government requirements for growing, harvesting, packing and holding of produce
for human consumption. Our collective goal is to decrease barriers to entry in new and/or existing
markets for participating smaller scale local farmers.
Additionally, we're bringing Procurers to you! The Search Local Farmer online and mobile food safety
information exchange, affords Local Farmer participants two different platforms to market their food
safety efforts and products and compete in a climate that increasingly demands food safety.
