…Find information about a particular farm, farmer’s market, or service?

  1. If you know the name of the farm, start typing it into the keyword section.
  2. If we have it listed, the name should pop up in a list below where you’re searching. Click the name and then Filter Points.
  3.  If you know the name of the farmer, type that name into keyword. It will not pop up on a list, but if you filter points, you should be able to reach it.
  4. If you don’t know either of these two things, try to narrow down your search as much as possible using the other filters. For instance, input “community garden” as the listing type, “poultry” as the product, and “Bergen” as the location. Filter points and look for the farm.
