America's Farmstand

Organic, all-natural, pure farm-fresh artisanal foods are now available to be shipped directly from independently run family farms, without warehousing. America’s Farmstand, an online retailer dedicated to providing a direct link between family farms and consumers, now offers unprecedented access to produce, dairy, meats and other fresh foods and beverages.

Featured products include the award-winning Coach Farm goat cheese, Pearson Peach Farm fresh Georgia peaches, Balakian Farm Pink Oxheart organic blended heirloom tomatoes, Stonington Seafood Harvesters Bomster scallops, New England Provisions Maine lobsters, Engelbert Farms organic New York  strip steak, Noank Aquaculture Cooperative Mystic oysters, Divine Brine’s Devilish spicy dill pickles, Victoria’s Kitchen Almond Water, Pearson’s southern praline pecans, Arndt’s homemade fudge, The Grain Exchange homemade gluten-free blueberry muffin mix and Zoe’s Premium Canine Gourmet, among scores of other farm-fresh foods.

“I was raised in the country and had the pleasure of jogging past and interacting with farmstands every morning growing up. After moving to the big city, I was increasingly struck by how much was lost when food goes from a farm into the big, industrial food system,” notes Todd Greenfield, Founder and President of America’s Farmstand.

“I found myself asking farmers, ’What if?’ What if there were a way to get your vegetables, fruits, cheeses, organic meats and other fresh foods directly to the people who want them, rather than having them lose freshness traveling to — and sitting in — warehouses for days before being transported to supermarkets?”

America’s Farmstand is committed to creating a new and transparent system for locally grown food production, responsible farming and growing practices as well as, ultimately, promoting healthy, nutritious foods as the bedrock of a balanced diet. America’s Farmstand creates a one-to-one connection between consumers and its network of small, family-run farms vetted by 30 criterion including growing methods, sustainability practices, biodiversity, fair treatment of workers and absence of chemical inputs. The company partners only with farmers who are committed to preserving the integrity of their land, water and soil resources.
