A new online site aims to make consumer subscriptions to community supported agriculture groups easy to use.

Called Farmigo, the service creates community-driven pickup location for providers of local fresh produce and other food.

So far, the system has about 1,500 pickup locations and 40,000 families delivering produce to the system, according to a report in PCmag.com.

The company provides an online marketplace for consumers to find, select, and receive fresh food, the company’s website said.

“Through group buying dynamics and subscription pricing, consumers attain affordable prices for organic food,” the website said.

Each farmer listed in Farmigo’s marketplace receives a Web-based management system to track harvest, packing, routes and member payment, according to the website.

Farmigo makes money by charging a transaction fee for each subscription.
