A virtual marketplace for farmers to buy and sell ag products and services online is now open for business.
Farming the Web, which is free to use, has six categories: Hay, straw and other feeds; salt and minerals; livestock and working animals; land for rent or lease; farm equipment; services and contracting; and other.
The website has a rating system that allows users to select “the most highly respected sellers,” said Alberta Forage Industry Network, which created the site.
It is a successor to the defunct government site Ropin’ the Web. A chat function is being developed and help is available at 403-819-1746 or [email protected].
