Rype Farms is a digital farmers market that offers peer-to-peer, locally sourced, produce enabling users to buy and sell locally grown food. Rype helps users effectively and efficiently earn income in exchange for their home grown food, which in hand can minimize waste
Buying local food creates local jobs. Food dollars spent at local farms and food producers stay in the local economy, creating more jobs.
Local food is fresher, healthier and tastes better, because it spends less time in transit from farm to plate, and therefore, loses fewer nutrients and incurs less spoilage. Know your farmer, how its grown, and where it came from.
Most people who grow their own produce, have more than they can bare, which leads to a lot of waste. With shorter distribution chains for local foods, less food is wasted in distribution, warehousing and merchandising.
