That’s why I was stoked to discover a new web app combining those two things. Check out Real Time Farms.
What is it?
It’s a site for consumers to help them understand where all the food items from a particular restaurant or farmers market is coming from. Just click on the location and BAM, it shows you. Very cool mash-up of a lot of apps, user input, and eatery transparency. It has a ton of potential.
Who is behind it?
Karl & Cara Rosaen from Ann Arbor, Michigan. They weren’t exactly on my radar either. But a little digging shows that Karl was on the product launch team for Google Adwords and Google Android. So I suppose that Real Time Farms is just another one of the growing start-ups from Google alumni.
Very cool indeed.
