  • “We were able to get everything we needed at Roseland Creek Elementary’s school garden – over 500 plant and veggie starts for a local nursery.”- Gioia G., Junior League of Napa Sonoma
  • “Crop Mobster is an amazing and long overdue vehicle for the small to medium ag producer! It has allowed us to manage cash flow by getting a small sum of money for something that was either going to go to waste, backing up storage facilities that cost money or worse, the ethical cost of not being able to afford to donate it to someone that could use it. It is really hard to justify time and money to load and deliver something you want to donate, once you spend the time to find an organization that can use what you have at that given moment. With Crop Mobster, all those stresses are taken away and good gets done simply and swiftly.” – Adam P., Victorian Farmstead

  • “CropMobster is creating a much needed revolution in local food distribution. By connecting small farmers and producers directly to those who can use their food, CropMobster™ does two things that are critically important to the long-term health of the community – helping farmers make a living by getting more healthy fresh food to those who most need it. Brilliant!- Cathryn Couch, Executive Director, Ceres Community Project & Member, Sonoma County Food System Alliance
  • “At Sonoma State University’s School of Business and Economics, we teach our students that entrepreneurship is the result of innovation plus value. CropMobster™ is an exemplar of this equation. Nick and Gary are entrepreneurs, visionaries who saw opportunity in two intractable problems, food waste and hunger. CropMobster™ harnesses the power of social media and crowdsourcing to create business success for food and agriculture companies, while delivering hunger relief for those in need. This idea is a winner. My prediction – CropMobster™ will ride the wave of interest in local agriculture and foods to a place of national prominence.” – Dr. William Silver, Dean, Sonoma State University School of Business and Economics

  • “Cropmobster is awesome!  We have gone from being worried about overproduction, to confident that anytime we have extra, we can give a shout out to the CropMobster™ community and they will come take full advantage of whatever deal we’re able to offer. Even though we didn’t make the full value of our product on these deals, to be able to keep working on the farm and have people come get what they need for a price that covers most of our costs was awesome.  Not to mention that our farm has already experienced an increase in traffic on our website and I have had numerous folks say, “Geez, we didn’t know we had a farm right here in Rincon Valley!” Thank you again for all you guys are doing.  CropMobster™ is farm changing (at least for us).” – Ariel Russell, Tusque Farms
  • “For 100+ years my family has worked the land in Sonoma and Marin. We’ve seen ups and downs, and a lot of new programs come and go. Our family fully endorses CropMobster.

Also, it’s a great way for the Foodie community to get involved in these important issues.Especially right now, it’s great to have a resource that shows local food that is being offered for free to low-income folks who may have an income gap for buying fresh food.” – Angela, The Foodies Project
