  Thank you for your interest in joining the team and taking another step forward for the success of your business! Sustainable Producers will help you show your profile, products and services to the world, with ease of access and easy maintenance of your page. You can register for a free posting in our crowdfunding section, or pay for the following affordable membership options. Each paid membership includes a profile listing on either the Farmers' Markets or Local Farmers sections.

Farmers' Markets and Local Farmers

image15

The packages available to Farmers’ Market Managers and Local Farmers are identical in prices for lengths of the packages and services automatically rendered. The key differences are in the applications and available bundles. The Farmers’ Markets Section is strictly a brief advertisement page while the Local Farmers Section is much more in depth towards the individual farmer and has merchant services support for those interested in selling their products on-line and directly to their customers. In order to help our local farmers and Farmers’ Market Managers save money there are discounts for bundles and collaborations. If a registered Farmers’ Market has 10 or more farmers located on its page it will be allowed to remain on this website for free; and if a farmer is listed under a registered Farmers’ Market they will receive a 10 dollar a month discount even if they are the only listed farmer. Farmers can also save money if they are listed in both the Farmers’ Markets and Local Farmers Sections. If a farmer has bought a package that is 5 years they will receive 5 dollars off every month of their second package, and 10 dollars off if their first package was 10 years in length.  These discounts can be stacked, but they cannot be retroactively applied.

Crowdfunding

The Crowdfunding Section is one of the best ways for any starting farm or farmer to make their presence known while raising the money they need at the same time. Unlike most crowdfunding services that take up to 10% in commission we will only take 1%, minus processing fees required by PayPal. All that is required by an aspiring farmer to be listed on the Crowdfunding Section is to order a free template via the “Order Your Profile Form” section located at the bottom of the page, fill out the form, e-mail it back to us along with a copy of the financial section of your business plan, and have a PayPal account set up in order to receive your funds.

Services and Descriptions

Profile Posting

Have your profile posted in either the Farmers' Markets, Local Farmers sections, or both.

Farmers' Markets: This section is used to display and summarize all relevant information regarding the specific farmers' market. While this section is primarily for use by the Market Managers, each individual farmer too can buy a slot under each posting with a brief description and a link to their primary post or other media platforms. 


Local Farmers: This section will be the primary display for a farmer's complete profile. This can include their biography, rating, and direct links to purchase their goods. If a posted farmer does not have their own website or social media for direct selling, this page will have the links to our online store to host the e-commerce of their goods.
