Soilmate.com is a website that connects consumers with their local food and drink growers, raisers, producers, and supporters. It allows consumers to find specific growers and products, as well as stores and restaurants that support those local growers and carry/use their products. Using ‘My Route’ Soil Mate allows consumers to build trips to include farms, markets, stores, restaurants, wineries, craft breweries, and distilleries, including fully customized directions and itineraries. It is the full local food and drink movement in one system, all interlinked. Search for local food, filter by the farm growing practices, and find specific products, when they’re available, and where you can buy them. If sold from the farm, find the hours and directions. Sold at the market, the market profile is interlinked with the farm. Sold at local stores, the stores’ profiles are interlinked with the farm. Supported by local restaurants, the restaurants are interlinked with the farm. Everything ties back to the farm, and the hands and story behind the food. Consumers can see exactly how to conveniently buy local products. Soil Mate did extensive focus groups with consumers and found that while consumers want to support local producers (to varying degrees and for varied reasons), the biggest barrier was that it was inconvenient. Soil Mate was built to make finding and purchasing local products much more convenient.
