Earlier this year, we created a way for Small Farm Central users to quickly create Google Maps directions pages for their farm.
The example above is from Oak Ridge Farm's "Directions to the Farm" page. On the left, the page asks for the origination address and then the destination address is already programmed by the farmer.
The user then hits "Get Directions!" and they are immediately shown turn-by-turn directions from their originating address to the farm. The user does not leave the Oak Ridge Farm website at all.
In my case it shows a 651 mile trip from Pittsburgh to Neenah, Wisconsin.
A special feature for our farms is the ability to drag and drop the destination point, so even if Google Maps does not recognize your rural address, you can direct your customers to find your location.
If you are already a Small Farm Central subscriber, login to your control panel and navigate to:
Create Content / Maps / Directions Pages
...you will have a directions page on your website within a few short minutes.
