Easy to Set Up and Easy to Manage
Our platform has all of the key features you need, and nothing you don’t. We’ve stripped it down to the basics so that you won’t waste time sifting through features you don’t need and will never use. After our initial 5 minute set-up, you can manage everything yourself. Prefer we do it for you? No problem!
You can also take a look at the setup guide to see how easy it is to get started.
Fits Your CSA Style
Regardless of when you run your CSA, if you have drop-off locations or offer home delivery, when it’s offered, distribution frequency, and how many distributions per share, you can offer CSAs your way. You also have the option to pass the Stripe payment processing fee on to your customers.
Manage Your Delivery Options and Pick-Up Locations
Add options for your customers to choose from - mark your delivery boundaries for each day/time that you delivery, or pick-up locations for each drop-off date.
Easily view all of the orders placed through your store, and update the delivery/pick-up selection for each order if need be - your customers will be notified. Likewise, if a customer updates their delivery/pick-up selection you will be notified as well!
Planning is a Breeze
All of your upcoming drop-offs and deliveries are laid out on your dashboard, grouped by date, and then by delivery option or drop-off location. Your customer’s contact details are right there and easy to find. Similarly, your customers have all of their upcoming deliveries or pick-ups listed on their dashboard.
Notifications When You Need Them Most
Select from daily and/or weekly email notifications of your upcoming deliveries or drop-offs to make sure you’re always prepared.
Pay-outs to Suit Your Preferences
Modern Locavore collects your payments and distributes them to suit your needs. Weekly, monthly, or “I NEED IT NOW!” are all valid options.
We offer free, ongoing support for when you need a hand or something isn’t working quite right. Interested in a new feature? Just let us know and we’ll do our best to set it up - we’re sure others would also appreciate it!
Not for us, for you! Well, for us, too. We’re not just here to act as a platform, we’re here to support our local food system, so we’ll be advertising on your behalf, trying to reach customers that may not have been part of the local food scene before.

Keep it Local
Farmigo and Harvie are well established and offer good services in their own right, but Modern Locavore is focused on local food in Kingston alone, and will help you sell to your target clientele.
Psst - It’s Free!
We know there are other options, and we’re just getting started. That’s why we’re offering you this service for free - you get to try it out, and be the first one to let us know what we can improve. As one of our first sellers, our service will be free for life! Free means no additional fees above the Stripe payment processing fee which we can’t avoid, however you can opt to pass that cost on to your customers (2.9% + 30 cents).
Want to give it a shot?
We promise you won't be disappointed.
