Farmhopping is a network of operating farms that users can part-own and manage using an interactive web platform.
Targeting both would-be virtual farmers and already-operating real-world farmers with sustainable farms to share, Farmhopping allows users to buy animals online from its network of farms around the world. Then, as owners of the animals, they get to make key farm-management decisions such as when to milk the animals or sell their wool, for example, and whether to keep or sell to other users the young animals that are born over the course of the year. Farmhopping features a game-like interface that teaches about farm management through an interactive and engaging routine based on farming activities carried out in the real world. The site’s participating real-world farmers, meanwhile, reward users for their achievements with different offline privileges, including free stays on the farm and the opportunity to consume their own organic produce and learn how to take care of their animals in person.
