Why Farms Struggle with Marketing

People expect to find you online but the technology can be confusing and complicated and people aren't buying.

  • Confusing - There are so many choices but what's going to work?
  • Time-consuming - Marketing can take a lot of time you don't have.
  • Costly - Websites can be expensive and get no results.
  • Technical - Marketing involves technology that's over your head.
  • People don't buy - The sales just aren't happening. Why?
  • Lack of help - You feel like you're on your own to figure it out.

What makes Openherd different?

Openherd exists to support the success of the family farm by providing easy, affordable online marketing tools under one roof.

Openherd is unique because our easy-to-use system is built specifically for farmers to help them market their animals and products online, giving you the feel of a custom built website without the high costs.

Many farms who have tried to set up their own websites have either struggled with complicated systems that don't have the tools they need, or they've wasted a lot of money paying for a custom website that's equally as expensive to keep up. That's because these companies don't understand farmers or care about what they're trying to achieve.

We understand farmers - why you love what you do - and how to connect you to the customers who are looking for what you have.

Our system not only includes an amazing custom website as the central piece of your marketing strategy but also unparalleled exposure on our national marketplace, and the ability to market on a breed or regional association website - all from one set of edits!

Openherd has been serving family farms since 2007 and we've helped thousands of farms "close the loop" in their marketing by helping them sell the things they love creating, so they can live free of the 9-5!
