Welcome to Alfrea!
Good food for all.
Taste the Difference.
Our vision here is simple: A healthy world in which all people have access to healthful, sustainably-grown food.
While our vision may be simple our mission is big: Inspire healthy workplaces and healthy communities. A sustainable food economy that empowers everyone to grow, harvest, preserve, share and eat fresh-grown food.
Why? Because fresh tomatoes and strawberries taste amazing. Gardening saves money, and small-scale farming can be profitable. And eating fresh, locally-grown food improves your health and helps heal the planet. We want to live in a world where everybody has access to sustainably-grown food. We’re hoping you do, too.
We make farming and gardening easy.
The thing is, farming and gardening can be tough. You need land, sometimes you need help, and what if you have a bunch of extra tomatoes at the end of the season? Alfrea is designed to help new and experienced farmers and gardeners meet each of these challenges. We connect you with land even if you live in an apartment or a city, garden services, including: garden designers, farm hands, experts, garden educators, and cooking classes and if that isn’t enough we even have an online farmer’s market where you can buy or sell fresh foods.
Along the way, we support local farm and garden-related businesses by helping them connect with customers in their community. Our innovative platform allows farm and garden designers, farm and garden builders, landscapers, master gardeners, compost experts and laborers to reach people who need their services. From established businesses to weekend side-hustles, we have room for everyone.
We want to make it possible for everybody to eat locally-grown food, every day
It’s a big crazy dream, sure. But we’re a scrappy bunch. Join us!
Alfrea was founded by David Wagstaff, a social entrepreneur intensely passionate about the power of good food to transform individual and community health, as well as the health of our planet. Good business and Good Corporate Social Responsibility. He’s excited about Alfrea because its a triple bottom line company. Social impact, environmental impact and financial success – a win for all.
As is often the case with innovative startups, the idea for Alfrea came from personal experience. David needed help to maintain his parents’ small farm. Considering ways to find that help led to thoughts about sharing the land with others. This created a domino-effect of ideas and ultimately the Sharing Community for good food was born; one place to help everyone grow, eat and enjoy good food, no how much time or knowledge they have. Today the concept has grown to include a Farmers’ Market for year-round ease and variety. And with the addition of an onsite Food Garden option, corporations and apartments have a simple, total solution that brings good food to their employees and residents.
Alfrea envisions a world in which all people have access to good food.
