CISA – Buy Local Food
South Deerfield, MA
Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) strengthens farms and engages the community to build the local food economy. More than 250 farms participate in their programs, and the number of residents who are committed to supporting local agriculture grows every day. Our Be a Local Hero, Buy Locally Grown® program, the longest-running agricultural buy-local campaign in the country, connects farmers and the community, improving farm business viability and enhancing the quality of life for residents across the region.
As a long time client CISA came to us and wanted a fresh look and some improvements to their website. The challenge was to add a fresh look and keep all the content of the current site – containing many pages and online tools to help residents, farmers and businesses support local agriculture. We also made improvements to the Find it Locally portal – an extensive digital guide to local farms, food and more.
This is the third website we have designed and developed for the company.

Custom Farm and Food Searches
We designed the Find it Locally search tool to enable visitors to search by food, type of CISA member, name and location. All the results are displayed on an interactive map with the ability to filter search results even further. We also made it possible for CISA to make custom searches and use links to highlight timely searches like blueberry picking or COVID 19 members that are open. All CISA members are able to login and edit their own information as well making management much easier for CISA.
