Local Line, an e-commerce & logistics software platform for farmers, food hubs, and farmers’ markets is launching a free website builder for farmers. As of August 21, farmers across North America can create and publish a free website at www.locallinesites.com.
The new website builder comes with five pre-made templates to choose from and has easy drag-and-drop functionality, allowing each farmer to fully customize a website. The website builder comes equipped with a logo builder and free online hosting.
Local Line, based in Kitchener, Ontario, built this feature because today’s popular website builders are too complicated to set up, and it can cost thousands of dollars to hire a website developer.
“Launching a website is the natural first step in helping farmers transition to online marketing,” says Cole Jones, CEO, Local Line. “With our new website builder, we can now start helping farmers earlier in their journey by removing every barrier to setting up their website. There’s no cost and no complexity.”
Growers wanting a more complex website can purchase a paid website plan for $9.99/month. This plan comes with unlimited pages, a custom domain, a blog, and more.
Farmers can also access a free trial of Local Line’s core e-commerce software by upgrading within the website builder. The Local Line Pro functionality gives farmers an online store, online payments, and a suite of order fulfillment tools to help the farmer accept online orders, organize deliveries, send invoices, and collect payments.
