We had wanted to be able to purchase large quantities of foods we liked for preserving for use throughout the year. Bob had been trying to solve the problem of being able to buy wholesale from growers. The problem was their orders were just too big for one person, then Sherle was added to a Facebook message from a friend of a friend who was putting together a wholesale order of apples and did we want to help fill the order. Yes, we did!
When the day came to pick up our order, we arrived, weighed out our order and realized that the lady organizing it needed some help, so we stayed. Bob immediately saw the potential to help more people and ways to streamline the process and talked to the lady organizing that event. She had been thinking along these lines as well and was pretty excited about the website idea and LF4U began.
After about a year and getting lots of details ironed out we had the website up and running just before harvest began the following year. The program was a success and we learned a lot of things along the way. Enjoy the updated website and we are looking forward to a new season.
