How It Works
Menuplanting is a platform for agricultural supply, made for helping farmers and buyers collaborate on the building blocks of agriculture- seeds. Through Menuplanting, buyers can instantly request a crop from a community of hundreds of Provender growers, track their crops progress from seed to sale, and connect with their growers to customize the fields of their local farm communities.
Plant your menu: six steps
1. DISCOVER YOUR PERFECT SEEDS
The core of Menuplanting is a rich and diverse catalogue of seeds- tailor made for North American growers and sourced from the finest local seed suppliers. Browse this catalogue of diverse, regional foods and choose the crops that best suit your needs.
2. REQUEST A PLANTING
Submitting a request to plant is simple and straightforward- pick your seeds, your quantities, and send us your payment information.
3. MATCH WITH THE PERFECT GROWER
Menuplanting will take your seed selection and match you algorithmically with a farmer who’s climate, region, growing practices and price point are best suited to you as a buyer. It works a bit like internet dating- we find you the perfect partner, and we’ll introduce you both via email.
4. Track your crop progress
As your crops grow out, Menuplanting will keep you up to date with the latest information on your successes and failures in the agricultural world. Via email and blog, we'll keep tabs on your crops for you, so you know what will be ready, when, and in what condition.
5. PRE-ORDER AND HARVEST YOUR MENU
The moment our growers give the green thumbs up, we’ll list your product for sale as a pre-order in the Provender marketplace. When your grower confirms yield and harvest date, we provide you with a comprehensive list of harvests, notes on quality and a link to the purchase on Provender that is exclusive to you until harvest.
6.Dropped off at your door
Once the purchase is made, your grower will ship the product right to you,either in person or through a food safe, accredited transporter. Happy eating!
