“The problem we’re trying to solve ultimately is that we want to get more locally grown food in restaurants,” says Jolijt Tamanaha. “It’s not only farmers that struggle to get products sold, but it’s also restaurant chefs who want the best ingredients but struggle to find them.”
Wouldn’t it be great if buying locally farmed food were as easy as clicking “buy now” on Amazon? The creators of Farmplicity think so, too. Farmplicity is a Web-based marketplace that would connect St. Louis chefs with farmers in a 150-mile radius.
