Marketing the way you like it

Traditional or... personalized ?
Why not both ?

Personalized

The member chooses the entire contents of their basket from your available products.

Traditional

The member does not choose the contents of their basket and cannot exchange any products via Maferme.

Flexible +

The member may choose a portion of the contents of their basket by exchanging certain products via Maferme.

Online store

Without subscribing to a CSA, a person can order from available products, choose their delivery point and pay online.

Cooperative

Many farmers cooperate freely, via Maferme, to offer a variety of products delivered to the same delivery point, on the same schedule.

Special orders

Whatever your marketing strategy, it is always possible to create special order forms (ex: production surplus, complementary products).
