Real Food Farm is an example of new agricultural enterprise taking place in cities around the country. Funded by the Baltimore Civic Works, the farm has been growing fresh produce on a six-acre plot of city property since 2009.
Real Food Farm's business has grown steadily over the the past three years, thanks in part to strong volunteer support and an innovative marketing strategy. The farm's bright green "Mobile Farmers Market" trucks have become a familiar sight around the Clifton Park area, and they continue to expand their reach throughout the city through social outreach programming.
Along with growing and distributing fresh produce to northeast Baltimore neighborhoods, Real Food Farm serves their community by hosting field trips for area youths. The farm also holds educational seminars on food preparation and good nutritional practices.
Aisle Won became involved with Real Food Farm in 2012. The intention was to see how mobile technology could help people maximize their budgets while buying locally grown food, while providing farmers with the tools they need to streamline adminstrative tasks. It's a wonderful partnership and we're proud to be a part of it.
Aisle Won's Real Food Farm app was launched in April of 2013. By the end of the 2013, food distribution improved by nearly 580% and home deliveries increased by a factor of seven. We even got some press from Technical.ly Baltimore!
