Organization Details –
WVFarm2U has a new feature on this website.  Once a week, we randomly select organizations to be displayed on the home page as a “Of the Week” organization.  We want to make sure that only farms that have updated their information are selected to be the select organization.  Therefore, you will need to check Request to be featured to be a selected organization.  Once you have been selected, you will need to login, update your profile, and check this box again to be considered again.
 
To be listed in multiple searches, you may select more than one category to be registered.  Find and click on the first category. 

Hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard as you select other categories to add your organization.  Your organization will be displayed in all of the categories that you select. 

Enter your short description – this will be displayed along with the image and name when the visitor searches.  This allows the visitor to pick the organization to view more details.  You have a limit of 250 characters. The visitor is then taken to your own organization page.  The long description is displayed on this page. 

Enter your times of operation and any seasonal items that you would like to bring to the visitor’s attention.

NOTE:  Input your business hours here, however  if you do not have set business hours, it is best to put the following in this field:  Call for an appointment
 

Describe if you offer any delivery options.  Make sure you add these options to your PayPal account if you sell items online.

 
Products, Menu, Bios

On this tab you may enter products, things to do, menus, menu entrees, or chef bios.  You do not have to use all of the fields for each product unless you are going to sell the items online.  You can just name the item, add a description and upload an image.  If you are going to sell items online, then you will need to complete all of the fields.

If you don't have product pictures of your vegetables, we have a sampling of stock photos in the last tab.  Simply select the photo of a similar product, save to your hard drive and upload to your page. 

Locations:

Whether you have multiple locations for your famers market, roadside stand, delievery destinations for your CSA or you have more than one restaurant, this is the tab for you.  You may now select more than one county as well, this works well for those extension agents who over see more than one farmers market in more than one county

Stock Photos

There are stock photos available for registered user use on this site.  To use these photos on this website, choose the photo, download and then upload the photo to your products page.  Be sure to add your own description about your product. 

For Example:  Our lettuce is grown in our high tunnel.  Because we grow this way, we have an extended growing season giving you more availability.
