Farmigo CEO Benzi Ronen recently had the opportunity to sit down with tech blogger Robert Scoble in the Rackspace offices in downtown San Francisco and talk about Farmigo, locally grown food, and sustainable agriculture.
Scoble is a veteran in the tech community and has had the opportunity to meet with up-and-coming startups as well as some of the giants of Silicon Valley, so it was great to hear his perspective on Farmigo.
Since our meeting coincided with Scoble’s birthday, we took the opportunity to provide him with a special meal prepared from locally sourced ingredients including Farmigo partner farms Terra Firma, Tara Firma, and Siren SeaSA. As you can see in the video, there’s nothing more delicious than fresh, locally grown food.
Take a look at the interview below.
Farmigo is a unique startup since we are using some of the most advanced technology and the power of the Internet to allow consumers to reconnect with what is – or at least should be – a very low tech industry.
Of course today, the food industry is complex, and relies heavily on things like chemical pesticides, antibiotics, and genetically modified food. It would certainly be a welcome change to use tech to make our food system more simple, and whole lot better in the process.
We would also like to thank Tiffany Friedman for preparing this delicious meal.
