Island Farm Stands is a crowd-sourced, map-based business directory for farm stands in Victoria and around Vancouver Island. Our goal is to enable people to easily locate locally grown produce.
This platform was conceived of, built, and partially populated by us, Anya and Alan. We’re constantly on the look-out for places where we can source local goods, and wanted to make it easier for everyone to discover new farm stands. If you have any feedback or questions, we’d love to hear from you! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I submit a farm stand?
Anyone can submit a farm stand to Island Farm Stands. Simply visit the Create a Regular Listing page and fill in the form. If you own a farm stand and would like to submit it to the website, you can register and visit the Create an Advanced Listing page to unlock some extra listing features and maintain your listing.
My farm stand is listed, can I claim it?
You sure can. First you’ll need to register for the site. Once that’s out of the way, log in and find your listing on the map and click View Listing to visit your farm stands listing page. On your farm stands page, click the green Claim Listing button. Clicking this button will make you the owner of the listing, and will transform the listing into an advanced listing. If you do not see the Claim Listing button, you’re either not logged in, or the listing has already been claimed. If you believe a listing has been wrongly claimed, contact us at email@example.com.
Are all farm stand submissions approved?
Almost all submissions are approved. That said, Island Farm Stands is intended to be a database of smaller, neighborhood farm stands. So larger, more commercial operations may not be approved to be listed in the database.
