We developed Bogard Food Hub to help solve two problems local farmers kept sharing with us.
First, no single website existed for buyers to easily see all the Alaska grown products available to them, right now! They needed a single searchable source that listed local production by farmer, food type, feed, grade, size, quantity and that complied with USDA FSIS track and trace requirements.
Second, no inexpensive cold storage options existed to help farmers meet the USDA standards, extend their selling season and preserve their production.
The Solution for Farmers and Buyers:
Bogard Food Hub helps Alaskan farmers preserve and move their goods to market by consolidating expected harvests and existing inventory online through the Bogard e-Hub. The e-Hub gives our buyers the best view of products as they move from Farm to Table.
We also help farmers who need to keep their production chilled, frozen, or want us fill their orders. Our team can also help wholesale buyers arrange larger orders to get better prices and provide storage if needed.
Buyers pay no mark-up. Buyers see the retail prices and items available in a live on-line market. It is easy to see and compare similar products from multiple growers. Farmers set and post their retail prices. Discounts are available for wholesale buyers.
We offer three flexible plans to help farmers and value added producers list their goods: Pay-as-you-go, List only, List & Fill Orders.
From poultry, beef and pork, to the specialty produce growers raise across Alaska, there is always something to see on the Fresh Sheet at Bogard Food Hub.
We also offer Livestock Layaway to help you reserve your speciality beef and pork with your favorite farmer. We support "Truth in Eating."
Make it Alaskan fresh and healthy.
