Building on the concept of neighbor hood co-ops interfacing directly with farms for food contracts, this site would give farmers the control to initiate deals based on supply / demand and price points.

Timothy commented on Groupon-like co-op website / network

Hey Sean,

Thanks for the feedback. I first thought of this as a way for farmers to push excess crops out, but it would make sense to turn it into a type of pull-system where yearly crops are ordered through this type of system.

Not sure how to start crunching the numbers, but do you have any advice on where to start?

Great idea, would be interesting if we could tie in a restaurant-week style event as well, to showcase local fare at restaurants at a fixed price. Would be showing off great-tasting local food, as well as a restaurants capability.
