Farm-to-phone app CropSwap is introducing a new subscription service called CropBox that gives customers more freedom, convenience and flexibility when it comes to buying local. Consumers are able to sign up and receive fresh local produce, honey, plants, seeds and other goods in a way that makes sense to them. As well as helping to give consumers a better sense of where their food comes from, the service also offers customization, so that members can receive monthly shipments or bi-weekly vegetable boxes.
While consumers will benefit from being able to shop locally, the subscription service also helps to empower local farmers and growers, especially at a time when summer farmer's markets can't operate as in years past.
