We get it. We're farmers, too.
When a customer asked a diversified farmer "what's the hardest crop to grow?" she replied, "the hardest thing to grow is Everything All at the Same Time."
As direct market farmers, we aren't just responsible for growing Everything All at the Same Time, but for doing everything else at the same time too: juggling the harvest and the livestock and the weather, and also marketing, sales, and customer relationships.
Thats where GrownBy comes in. It simplifies customer engagement and sales - saving you time and helping you turn your passion into a career.
