Who better than consumers and producers themselves to be the owners of CrowdFarming?
We're deciding whether to launch a crowdfunding campaign so you can have a piece of CrowdFarming too. Sign-up to register your interest and indicate the amount you would like to contribute with, from minimum of 10€, and to maximum 50,000€ per person.
Note: Telling us you're interested does not oblige you to participate in the funding round.
We already have over 170 farmers in CrowdFarming selling and sending their produce directly to more than 420,000 households in Europe. Thanks to direct sales, European organic farming is resurging and becoming again a source of quality employment.
History of CrowdFarming
A local success story turned into a global success story
The CrowdFarming idea was born in Valencia, in the orchard of two young orange farmers: Gabriel and Gonzalo Úrculo. In 2010, the Úrculo brothers decided to give a new life to their grandfather's abandoned orange fields. Half of the trees were dead, and in order to replant them they asked amongst their family members, friends, and their very first customers who wanted to adopt an orange tree. Each person that adopted a tree could name it, receive its picture, and receive its harvest at home.
After becoming a success story in their local town, Bétera, and encouraged by customers that would visit them from all over Europe, they decided to create crowdfarming.com to share their direct sales channel with more Farmers.
With this funding round we want to give the opportunity to all those who have helped us as customers to now become shareholders in CrowdFarming.
Objective: to simplify the food supply chainThe inefficiencies of this chain generate food-waste and an economic disproportion between what the consumer pays, and what the farmer receives. Direct sales solve these inefficiencies allowing farmers...
to sell without intermediaries
under their own brand
and receive direct feedback from consumers.
Why do we, as consumers, seek direct food purchase channels?
Traceability and transparency
Know by whom, how, and where the food you eat is grown.
Generate impact with our purchases
The purchase of food starts a chain of social and environmental impact.
Protect designations of origin
Decommodify food and support a specific way to produce it.
Buying food directly from the farmer is the most powerful every-day act available to anyone to generate a positive social and environmental impact.
