Our Mission

Accessible Farm to Table

From the fruit orchards of Emmett and the dairy cows of Meridian to Boise’s organic vegetable gardens, the Treasure Valley and surrounding Southern Idaho region has an incredible agricultural legacy. This legacy should be shared with everyone who lives here. Our mission is to raise awareness of farms within miles of your neighborhood and provide an easier way to support and enjoy nearby agricultural bounty.


Strong Local Food Supply Chain

Reliable access to food means safety and security for a community. We can ensure our community’s health and survival by supporting local food production. By connecting more people with access to locally grown groceries, we hope to create greater demand for farming in and around the Boise-metropolitan area.

Founder's Story

I grew up near Maple Grove and Victory road in Boise, Idaho. My family raised small flocks of sheep and chickens, grew a big garden, and harvested apricots and eggs. In high school I enjoyed the responsibility of raising a Jersey heifer for dairy auction at the Western Idaho Fair.

Apart from my personal experience with raising animals and gardening, I'm a regular city person living in Boise. Like others here, I care about healthy food, the environment, and our community.

During the pandemic and lockdown of 2020, people around the globe faced rows of empty grocery shelves on their trips to the store. Boise-metro residents were no different. This period of scarcity fueled a passion I already had for fresh food and the people of the Boise-metro area.

Amid all the development the valley has seen in the past few years, it's easy to forget that there are still farms scattered across the city, in backyards and in rural pockets outside of Boise. I started FarmDeliver in 2022 to help connect these farms with the neighborhoods that surround them.

My hope is to make it easier for farmers and backyard growers to sell their goods to the people closest to them. In doing so, I hope communities across the Boise-metro area will grow more connected and self-sufficient.

Thank you for supporting local farmers!

Sincerely,

Elisabeth Chin
