I'm not sure where to start with this, so I'll go from the beginning...
I live on an organic vegtable farm, where we sell our vegtables via CSA format. The gist of this is that people pay a set amount in the beggining of a year, then come to pick up their "share" of vegtables every week for that year. To help with this, we have a website: www.gardenpatchfarm.com. The site was set up by a friend that has moved from my area- it is now maintianed by my mother using her computer.
Now, recently, we have been entertaining the idea of shipping vegtables to people- using the internet as a resource. My parents have thought it a good idea for me to start my own business doing this (as a subsidiary of Garden Patch Farm).
I have...well, you might as well say no experience in putting up a web site. However, for this idea to work, I am going to need one.
What I need from you: advice!
Where do I start? What program(s) do you suggest? How much do you think I will need to accomplish and maintain this website goal?
I am looking to create a pleasant, informative website under my own name (i.e, not someoneelse/mysite.com). I will need a e-mail account under this site name as well.
I'm not sure what else I may need, but I am trying to learn! I appreciate any advice you may have.
Edit: Er, did I put this in the right spot, and if not, how can I move it?
