Farm Direct MN Now on Google Maps, Buy Directly from MN Farms
Farm Direct Minnesota was a Facebook group that was launched during the Coronavirus pandemic in Minnesota. It was at a time where local farmers were hurting across the state. The page has been pairing local farmers with people wanting to buy products directly from the farm.
Farm Direct MN quickly grew in popularity and attracted over 40,000 new members since May 5, 2020. Now, the group is on Google Maps! You can zoom in on your location and check out which farmers are close to you.
It's a great option for someone who wants to buy their products from the farm but they're not sure where to start. I'll admit, before this page existed I wasn't sure how in the world you'd even go about doing something like that.
So, if you've ever wanted to raise your own chickens, buy a portion of a cow, get fresh honey, etc. this page is absolutely for you.
Farmers and locally made product producers can advertise on this page for FREE. They're not charging farmers to be a part of this which is awesome!
