Getting your farm listed on the MABA website

MABA participates in the Openherd Affiliate Program, which allows you to use Openherd's system to upload and manage your farm information, sales lists, and other pages free of charge and your information will be automatically synced to your profile on the MABA website.

To get your farm listed, simply create a free account on Openherd. Once you have created your account and your farm profile (go to 'My Farm' in your Openherd account, click 'Edit My Farm Page,' make any edits, and click 'Create Farm Profile'), send an email to Kathy Brown to let her know you've created your Openherd farm profile. We will then add you to the MABA website.
