Farmivore was originally founded under the name "Ojai Farmstand" by farmer Max Becher in 2013. The business was born by selling the summer excess produce from a local farmer Max was volunteering for. Starting with a handful of customers and operating out of the back of his pickup, Max's vision was to create an efficient online system of selling local farm products to local customers. 5 years and 300 customers later, Max teamed up with fellow Ventura County farmer Mike Roberts. Mike and Max shared the same vision and passion to create new systems to link farmers with eaters in a direct way that tells the story of the farmer. The rest is history... we've come a long way from the early days, and invite you to join us as we continue to make local farm history, one bite at a time.
