Start2farm

In 2011 we began working with the USDA to design and develop Start2Farm.gov: an online database connecting beginning farmers and ranchers with available programs and resources.

Our Drupal site managed complicated taxomonies and faceted search (using Solr) in order to provide a smart and easy-to-access aggregation of farming and ranching resources.

In 2015, the site content was merged into the USDA's newfarmers.usda.gov.
