Locally Grown Food, Locally Grown Pixels

Central Rivers Farmshed (Farmshed) engaged Ascedia to develop an online presence that accurately portrays their growing organization. Their site's goal? To enable Farmshed to spread local food throughout Central Wisconsin. 

Design that Drives Communication

Through the Ascedia beCause program, Ascedia was able to create a custom design and integrate it into a WordPress CMS. The design was professional yet represented the heart and soul of this non-profit organization. The site’s main goal was to get people involved with Farmstead's cause and motivate them to spread the word. To achieve this goal, Ascedia created:

  • An online event calendar that easily allows users to sign up for events
  • Integrated social media feeds to encourage conversation
  • Embeded rich media (image galleries, videos, forms, homepage slider) for greater engagement, donations and lead generation
  • An easy-to-update CMS that empowers Farmshed staff to communicate news and updates on major projects

Real-Time Results

Farmshed's site is now an extremely popular information hub that allows them to deepen the community's relationship with food in all forms, from growing, processing and preserving to cooking and eating. Thanks to Ascedia, Farmshed is able to make real-time updates to their site and showcase their images and resources. Farmshed will continue to grow their online presence and have planned a future project to create an online Atlas that replaces their current static PDF.
