Hunter's Honey Farm Logo

Hunter’s Honey Farm Project

Website Design, Logo Design, E-Commerce, Integration and Search Engine Optimization

The Challenge

Hunter’s Honey Farm’s existing website functioned, but had a number of issues:

  • An extremely dated look and feel.
  • Could be displayed in miniature on mobile devices, but was barely usable.
  • Since it was integrated with their accounting software, keeping the website content up-to-date was difficult and time-consuming.

As a result Hunter’s their online sales had been declining for several years.

Owner, Tracy Hunter, had a number of requirements for the new website:

  • Include the latest website design features, but maintain a folksy, hometown, hand-crafted look and feel.
  • Since they sell retail and wholesale, they needed to offer shipping via UPS and the U.S. Postal Service.
  • Process credit card charges through their existing merchant account.

 

Our Solution

TRG Web Designs developed a new website for Hunter’s Honey Farm using:

  • WordPress as the platform.
  • WooCommerce as the e-commerce engine
  • Custom code and other software to provide unique features like recipes, tours and events.

As part of the project, we also designed a new logo for Hunter’s Honey Farm.

Our implementation included:

  • A cloud-based hosting platform configured with Secure Socket Layers (SSL)
  • Credit card processing via Authorize.Net
  • Integration with UPS, U.S. Postal Service and Stamps.com to display real-time rates, print labels, pay postage and automatically assign tracking numbers.
  • Google Analytics to monitor website traffic, especially shopping cart and checkout activity so that abandoned carts issues could be analyzed and improved.

Logo Design

For Hunter’s Honey Farm, we designed two logos:

  • The primary logo had an emblem containing a bee to the left and their name on the right.
  • We also created a round emblem logo for places where the wide emblem wouldn’t fit (e.g., the site icon shown when the site is saved to a smartphone’s home page).

Mobile Friendly Design

We incorporated a number of features to make the new site mobile-friendly.

  • We employed responsive design techniques where we detect the size of the user’s screen and format the pages for that specific size.
  • We made the fonts large enough to be easily read from mobile devices.
  • We sized buttons and icons so they can be easily tapped and spaced them far enough apart to to avoid accidental taps on the wrong object.
