    Working with Open Food Network has been an absolute pleasure…They have a wealth and depth of knowledge about agriculture, environment and food systems that was brought to bear in our project. They also have the rare quality of being able to zoom between the micro detail, including highly technical and scientific detail, and the big picture, and this enables them to provide extremely good strategic advice. They are also very flexible and highly committed to meeting deadlines. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
