Please address any questions to the contact persons listed on the 
following web sites:

Harvestation (http://www.harvestation.com/) is a new online farmers' 
market for Tompkins County (NY).  It was developed by the folks at 
IthaCan (http://ithacan.ning.com/) to facilitate bulk buying for food 
preservation purposes, I believe with funding from a Northeast SARE 
Sustainable Community Grant. IthaCan is a web-based social network 
where home food preservers in Tompkins County (NY) organize food 
preserving events and share information.

Through the new Harvestation website, buyers are able to:
    * shop from the comfort of their homes
    * enjoy bulk discounts
    * post their own wish-lists for farmers to browse
    * place orders in advance of harvest
    * get to know their farmers
Farmers are able to:
    * sell directly from the farm
    * set their own prices, minimum quantities, and pickup times
    * accept payment via PayPal
    * advertise their products online
    * review wish-lists & plan according to buyers' desires
    * get to know their customers
