Sarah's, Panorama Orchards, Website Story

July 12, 2019 1 By Bernardo Ryan



We were out to find websites on the
brink of technology failure and turned them into something awesome. Hi, this is
David Grubb from Shepherds Loft and I'm here with Sara. Sara you want to tell
us who you are what you do here. Sure, I am the manager for Panorama farm market. We've been in business for three generations so it's a family-owned farm store. We do baked goods and jams and jellies fried pies and our main thing is fresh apples so we've got pretty much any apple that
you've probably heard of. The recipes on the website or built with flash this is an
old technology and it's not search engine friendly the recipes section is
an opportunity for us to really make this website cool. We need to make the
recipes searchable filterable and printable the website isn't secure nor
mobile responsive which are basic functions that we will include in the
conversion. She wants to get a new website but she doesn't want to spend a
lot of time on creating new content so what we're gonna do is we're gonna take
her website and we're gonna put it into new technology which will make them
website mobile responsive and it'll make it secure then we're gonna give the
whole website a design uplift making it look prettier and we're gonna take that
recipe section and make it fun and useful so that people can print out
recipes. Sara is running a food market store out here in the country and
Ellijay and she told me this fantastic story about how this guy who hauled off
some rotten apples and he brought back some apple brandy they didn't want to
sell the brandy but what they did was they figured that they you can put that
into a recipe and they still do that today that except they just buy the
brandy and they make this Apple bread that's just wonderful so we were really
want the website to kind of bring that story alive they've been here since 1965
so we wanted to have that country feel and really kind of highlight their food
market store. I'm gonna sign this web design project to one of our web
designers that we worked with for long time Karina she's worked with us
since 2012 and she is just really awesome I can describe things in just a
few sentences and she knows exactly what I'm talking about she knows how to
anticipate what the clients want in terms of design and functionality so I
can't wait to see what she can do with this website. I am Karina and I am a web designer for Shepherds Loft since 2012. My favorite things in a website are
the nostalgic feel of the logo and the use of apples in the background on full
screen banner on the homepage Karina. did a really good job with adding a new
logo at the top and the animation and as you scroll down you'll see these images
or animate and pop in these fade in those is pulled in at the bottom we got
a great big footer with a background image and it just looks really beautiful
we started with our basic WordPress plan giving this website security and SSL
certificate using a preferred Divi page builder from elegant themes every set
website we designed is mobile responsive we use the project section to create a
portfolio for the recipes then to display them all on one page we used a
filterable module now the visitor can sort the recipes by category without
leaving the page when they click on a recipe they go to a page where they can
see a bullet list of ingredients with an option to print my wife Connie spent a
great deal of time formatting the recipes into bullet format so they would
be easy to read I thought making these recipes printable was going to be a
challenge but with WordPress I quickly found a plug-in that would do the job I
think we really captured the essence of the food market and the country feel
with the colors and the images I believe Sara is really gonna like this website
so I can't wait to see what she has to say
so we just recently did a new web design for you so tell us what you think about
your new website yeah it's it's going real well
we're gonna launch it just in the next day or two and so far so good I've been
really happy with with the way it's organized a lot of thought has gone into
it and I think David's done a great job he's been very easy to work with very
accommodating I'm a little picky so he's been he's been very helpful in making
any changes that needed to be done great thank you Sara.
