Jeremy Bloom and Matt Hokanson met through working together in the Portland Food Co-op. Through their personal interest of local food, farming and organizing, as well as the knowledge of e-commerce within their careers, they joined forces to offer their expertise to farmers and buying clubs.
Jeremy & Matt have also both worked and volunteered on a variety of farming projects. Doing the hands on work our customers do every day, we’ve been able to see the challenges and create solutions. Combining that experience with our ability to create process for any given individual, we can get you selling online regardless of your previous experiences, and keep you going in to the future with solid ground.
Jeremy Bloom came to Maine in 2004 after living in New York City’s East Village for the previous 9 years. He has been developing and managing websites for e-commerce and marketing since 1995. In 2007 Jeremy worked on a friends’ farm where he learned about small organic farming. Since that time you’ll often find Jeremy outside gardening/farming, in the kitchen, or being active in the food communities of Maine. Jeremy will serve as the business manager, salesman, and marketer of our software services, as well as hands-on and daily customer service.
Matt Hokanson is a bearded gent from Maine who now lives in Oakland, CA. He is a programmer and e-commerce developer, and has a love for the local foods movement. As a member of the Portland Food Co-op Matt has taken a large part in developing technology for the purpose of purchasing food locally online. He will take part in training and some sales efforts, but will mostly serve as lead programmer for the Internet Farmer and will provide technical support to sales and customers.
