Idea

The major obstacle with the original website was that most of it was unusable by today’s standards. Most of the graphics, photos, and information on the site were either too small or didn’t quite work right in the first place. They didn’t even have a functional contact page or self-hosted email address! They reached out to me wanting a fully modernized website that would engage their customers so I rolled up my sleeves and started from scratch.

Process

The early stages of this project consisted of getting everything in the right place. I transferred their domain to my hosting services, set up their own @medaryacres.com email addresses, and built the new site with modern standards and a working contact page. From there I made a beautiful homepage slider, a fully functional contact page, and even got to know the employees by taking all new staff photos!

While building the site they also approached me with a secondary project they had always wanted to try. The goal was to take a picture of every individual plant variety, label them, and categorize them so they were searchable on the website. This took many weeks but it added an entirely new functionality to the website and enables us to set up an online store in the future.

Completion

Now that the website is finished, Medary Acres is in a better position for the next growing season. They will now be able to monitor traffic on their website, see what information and plants users enjoy the most, and use that data to provide a better experience. We even agreed to slowly integrate an online store starting with gift cards and moving on to in-store pickup in the future.

One of the most rewarding elements of working with Medary Acres was getting to know the employees and always feeling welcome to their beautiful greenhouse!
