Farm Direct Minnesota




Farm Direct Minnesota  (FDM or FDMN) has become a statewide asset that connects farmers direct to customers and came right when it was needed most - May 5th, 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many were left with no way to move product, farmers markets closed, slaughter houses did the same, the usually reliable supply chain basically shut down. At that point I started the facebook group and this website to bridge the gap.

The FDM Mission as always is: 'To connect farmers direct to customers and strengthen the local food system, and in doing so to help eliminate food deserts'.

Created 3 1/2 years ago as mentioned (May 2020) this website and its Facebook presence have had a greater reach then similar organizations with over 26+ years in business.

I have seen many "copy cats" coming from all directions this past year, and while that is great if it moves your product, watch to be sure you are really getting what they advertise they offer.

APPS are great but if buyers are not using them, you have no audience for your goods. There are also some pretty hefty % taken on these APPS per sale. There are often start up costs or monthly costs. Do your homework.

I'm have also seen many articles on "Farm-Direct Selling" and "how to do it". This platform is how to do it! And I am proud that it has lead the way!

On our our 2 year anniversary we introduced membership.
