— The Openherd Team

What is Openherd?

You know your farm has something great to offer but despite your best efforts, you can't get people to buy.
We hear this frustration all the time.

At Openherd, we believe every farm should be able to market themselves effectively online. We make it easy and affordable to get noticed so you can connect with customers and grow your farm.

While many website companies just help you put your information online, Openherd goes further because we promote your animals and products on our national marketplaces and direct qualified visitors to your website. It's a complete marketing system designed for farmers to be easy to use and get you rapid results.

Technology is here to stay, so let Openherd take care of getting you a stunning website and promoting you online so you can grow your farm and live life outside of the 9-5!
