CREATING COMMUNITY THROUGH FOOD
West Michigan FarmLink was started with one thing in mind…helping local farms sell their products to local consumers. So we created wmfarmlink.com – the online marketplace that does just that. Our farmers and producers post their products and prices (that’s right, the farmers set their prices) on our website. Our aim is to create a food community that empowers both Members and Farmers.
Right now, you can only be a member if you live in West Michigan. Our Members place their orders online during a weekly three day shopping cycle. Each shopping basket is packaged to order and brought to our World Headquarters here in Grand Rapids. FarmLink sorts everything by customer. Members can pick up their orders Tuesdays at our Grand Rapids warehouse. You never know which of our chefs or farmers you’ll run into.
We use this blog as a place to take recipes that we find out in the world and showcase our local products with them. We will always link to or attribute the original recipe and then we will include the recipe with any changes we made at the end. This way we do some of the experimenting for you.
