Local Line is trusted by thousands of farmers and food hubs around the world. See what they have to say about Local Line's inventory management.
“The great thing about Local Line is I’m still able to list products by the piece or, for lettuce as an example, by the head. The inventory and pricing for that product are based on the unit, not by weight. I have the flexibility to select which option works best for each product. It’s a HUGE lifesaver"

"Local Line is a game changer for small-medium Market Gardens. It opens up a bigger customer base at a very affordable cost. Local Line pays for itself and then some every month."
