We decided to invest all of this weekends earnings (and a little bit more) on Crowd Farming. What is crowd farming, we just found about it too! So here is Gonzalo explains it:
I am Gonzalo Úrculo, farmer and co-founder of CrowdFarming. Together with my brother Gabriel, I started cultivating oranges and clementines in 2010 to recover the abandoned farm of our grandparents. To avoid the crisis in the agricultural sector, we set up a simple website that allows us to sell our fruit directly to the end consumer (or CrowdFarmer as we like to call them).
"Buying food is the most powerful every-day act available to anyone to generate a positive social and environmental impact."
Why Cloudnola and Crowd Farming
We get great fresh produce directly from the farmers, at the same time they can plan their crops/production accordingly reducing waste and maximizing their profit. It's Win/Win
