Used occasionally for 6-12 months

I got a lot of great produce this summer from local farmers through Cropolis. I’m excited to get more this summer!!!

Pros
How quick and easy the order forms are, it supports local farmers, helps me get quality produce. It also makes the farmer so much easier to work with - Farmers that use Cropolis don’t miss any emails or texts.

Cons
I wish more farmers used it, so I’d have a bigger variety of farms and produce to choose from

We were trying to use both Shopify and Mailchimp before Cropolis, and between the costs, limitations and the all their bells and whistles (fancy interface and tutorials)... Cropolis by far simplified our lives and enabled us to make weekly communications without having to navigate through a complicated maze of features that we didn't use.

Pros
Simplicity. Takes 15 minutes to send my current inventory to entire customer list (or only a select group), and everything is customizable on the fly.... What to list and what to exclude.

Cons
There were some early compatibility issues with my phone (a weird one) but the team at Cropolis responded and had me up and running within 24hrs.

Croplis has been a life saver. As a restaurant owner I try to order as much local food as possible. It’s really saved time in having to contact a bunch of different farms and have they have available.

Pros
I love the user interface and how it is to navigate from page to page and achieve what I want to achieve!

Cons
That’s a tough question, I really just wish it wasn’t as seasonal. But that’s more of a farm problem than software problem haha

Response from Cropolis

Lettuce Heads Farm has had a great experience with Cropolis, any time there is an issue or question it is answered in minutes not hours or days. If a suggested change is made by myself it comes to fruition quickly. We have used the program for one year and seen sale increase by leaps and bounds. It make sour job of selling easier and our product more accessible to the masses.

Pros
Its simple, easy to use and allows for numerous customized options.

Cons
On occasion it runs slow in my browser no matter how good my internet signal is.

Benefits

Cropolis was built with the help from farmers to increase direct sales by automating most back-office work, minimizing the time needed for managing orders, payments, and reporting, and communications.

Inventory tracking tools help ensure that the farm is maximizing the amount of food sold by informing customers of limited quantities and sharing what’s available.

Clients can discover seasonal food availability and receive updates from the farm, see where their food is coming from, and track their orders and deliveries via the Cropolis online portal.

The 30-second email builder enables farmers to create professional, templated emails to reach customers via any device, helping them create a reliable channel that grows engagement with more customers.

Cropolis automates records and reports in order to help farmers keep track of pricing, monitor their farm’s progress, and explore trends in products and pricing.
