This application has been developped for family farmers to simplify managing CSA enrollment. Resulting from team work, it is constantly evolving thanks to the feedback and contribution from the farmers using it.
Its stength comes from its wide array of functionalities put together to better serve members while simplifying management and lowering the risk of error.
To cut a long story short: back in 2013, Mélilot farm asked one of its member to help them managing their CSA shares through the web. Interested with the result, a second farm, Les potagers des nues mains, wanted to try the app. In 2015, Équiterre did a pilot project offering the web tool to 12 farms from the network.
Given the satisfaction of most participating farms and the interest raised by others, Equiterre offered the web tool to all the farms from its network starting in winter 2016. The application is hosted on fermierdefamille.com.
