Crowdfarming (translated as “swarm farming”) wants one thing above all: to value food more again through a newfound closeness between producers and end customers. The idea behind it is simple: people adopt fruit trees, animals or vines and the farmers deliver apples, cheese or wine directly to their door. This special form of sponsorship replaces the intermediary trade (the classic food trade) and also allows food to be offered at a lower price due to the producer’s better ability to plan (e.g. through less food waste) as a result of binding purchases. In this way, all the players get something out of it, as well as the food itself.
