A farmer’s daughter from Whatcom County has a growing web site that connects small, local farmers directly to customers.

Janelle Maiocco says her site, Farmstr.com, allows people to buy fresh food from local farmers, ranchers and fishers.

 

People can search for offers in their area, and arrange to pick up the products and in some cases right at the farm or ranch.

The site launched last September covering the Pacific Northwest, but they plan to expand to other cities next year.
