Has anyone heard of My Organic Acres? It seems to be a scheme for renting out parts of a farm, the produce from which will be delivered straight to your door, from wherever you live in the country. (How can that be a good idea?) I say "seems to be" because it's the most confusing – though expensively produced – website I've seen in ages. Actually when Craig Cramer first brought it to my attention I wrote back to ask: "What IS it? Something like Farmville?" And he responded that I'm not the first to think it's a game.
So I read more of the website but I'm still asking: "Game, great idea, or scam?" Craig sent me this press release but it didn't help.
And get this. They promise to use an "exclusive farm cam" system so we can watch our own food growing. Seriously?
Wacky schemes and products are, I suppose, symptoms of the growing popularity of organic foods and gardening in general, so probably a good thing. In the big picture.Posted by Susan Harris on May 16, 2010 at 5:50 am, in the category Uncategorized.
