basil & salt’s new farm & ranch connect service, matches consumers and producers across the country

Basil & Salt would like to connect producers directly to new customers.

Cattle graze in country paddock with sunset background, Australia.

Consumers have new and valid questions both in buying  finished product and starting their own small farms.

As our supply line “hiccups”, consumers want to go straight to the source for their products. Unfortunately the average grocery store customer doesn’t know where to look. We want to connect farmer, rancher, producer to the end user.

What Farm & Ranch Connect will do

  • Let the customer know where and how to buy product across the country
  • Give consumers advice on what they need to grow their own food, raise chickens and livestock and where and how to purchase animals, equipment and feed.

Basil & Salt is connecting consumers directly with farmers, ranchers, meat markets, small produce markets, dairies, creameries and road side stands across the country. This list will go live in June 2020 and will be updated daily.

Buyers will be able to search online and find producers and their product by category, state, county and city to find the perfect local farm, ranch, market or stand that most closely matches their needs. The producer pays a small annual fee of $12.50. If you are a producer and would like to add your listing to Farm & Ranch Connect please follow this link for additional information and checkout.

The list will publish directly on the basil & salt site under the Farm & Ranch Connect tab and  will be shared across all platforms and partner sites.

“We are hoping these direct connections will be a lasting trend and we will market this program well. We look forward to connecting and working with both producers and consumers”. ~karie engels
