Eastern Shore Harvest Directory

A project of the USRC, the Eastern Shore Harvest Directory is a free tool offered to businesses in Cecil, Kent, and Queen Anne’s Counties which encourages consumers to shop local and makes it easier for them to do so. The Harvest Directory was recently revamped by the GIS team, after last having been updated in 2005. The website is full of content ranging from videos from site visits to businesses, recipes, and area specialized searches.  The Upper Shore Regional Councilhas teamed up with Washington College GIS to make this project a success.

The Harvest Directory online map makes it easy to find agrobusinesses and services on the upper shore, allowing you to sort by type of business, search by product, or search by name.The Harvest Directory online map makes it easy to find agrobusinesses and services on the upper shore, allowing you to sort by type of business, search by product, or search by name.

In addition to the website, the Weyr Media team contracted help to produce an app to make finding businesses and farmers markets simple to do, even on the go. The app is currently available in the Android Market, and is coming soon to the iTunes App Store.
