Today’s consumer expects to be able to shop on their smart phone, get free fast delivery, and pay with a credit card, for everything including groceries. Farms need to go digital to get to market. On this episode of Tech Bites, host Jennifer Leuzzi (@mmesnack) talks with the founders of two different digital platforms that connect farmers to their customers. Chris Damico’s Farm’d (@getfarmd) is a B2B marketplace connecting farmers directly to restaurants. Wen-Jay Wing’s Local Roots NYC (@localrootsnyc) is a hybrid of a CSA subscription-style service and an online marketplace where customer can choose different ways to buy from the farm, and whether they want it delivered. This episode of Tech Bites (@techbiteshrn) is made possible by the generosity of University of California Press (@uc_press) publishing voices that drive change and impact how people think since 1893.
