Distribution Matchmaking Tool Information
2
The matchmaking tool allows farmers seeking distribution points, farmstand outlets, or sales collaboration to connect with farms that are looking for additional products or partnerships or who have the infrastructure resources to help other farms in need.
3
This resource will help you quickly identify farmers by geographic area and type of product, and connect with them directly to discuss next steps. Farms are encouraged to add as much information as is relevant, and include both email and phone contacts. At this time this tool is not meant to be consumer-facing; the goal is to connect farms with excess product or limited distribution capacity with farms who have the ability to help distribute it through their existing sales channels.

If someone seems like a good fit, please reach out to them directly via the phone or email contact on their posting.
