We have been in Maine for the past 7 weeks without leaving the house. We were keen on finding fresh food, to the point where we started our own garden (see picture, and more here on Instagram).
However, while waiting for the first crops, we decided to look for local farms delivering food (with all the "social distancing" guidelines); we realized it's not too straightforward. Given our experience in technology and cooking, we quickly realized we needed to do something about it (instead of watching Netflix), to help both farmers and others like us, looking for fresh local food.
BeanSuppah was therefore born.
Shortly afterwards, Portland Press Herald wrote a short piece on BeanSuppah.com
Farmers then told us that they want to manage their own information on BeanSuppah.com. So we listened :) Now this feature is available.
Next, we read about huge amounts of food being thrown away, milk being dumped, chickens and other animals being killed. Meanwhile, we were told that food banks and other organizations were looking to buy products in bulk. So we are now in the process of adding this functionality, which should be available for the public later this week.
We appreciate all your kind words and we welcome your thoughts/questions/comments or even a basket of fresh vegetables or a piece of meat :) We miss them! :) We've been mainly eating cabbage, beans and carrots as we've been staying in isolation for weeks, where no one seems to deliver anything fresh. And our garden is at the seedling stage :)
