Sylvester Manor Educational Farm is a Non Profit Organization based in beautiful Shelter Island, Long Island. The historic manor and the grounds sprawl a vast 260 acres, and sit on some of Long Islands oldest living relics. Settled in the late 1600s, the manor and grounds were donated by the last known descendent of the Fiske family in the later 2000s to preserve the land, share its legacy, and maintain the farmland.
They reached out to me to organize their vast portfolio of photographs and design a captivating website to display the experience, and all of their offerings. The functionality they requested was to have a one-size fits all ecommerce system to collect donations, sell merchandise, sell tickets for special events, collect CSA program sign-ups, as well as summer youth program registrations.
Working intimately with their in-house team, we were able to complete this project in one month. A record for such a multi-dimensional website.
Within a the first month the site received over 6,000 views, we increased membership, donations in the first quarter and gave the SEFM brand a fresh new look and feel.
