Frais Child Theme for Divi
Frais is a Divi child theme designed for farms that offer a farm market or CSA harvest box program. Frais includes styling for WooCommerce, layout for recipes, blog, and more.
The Home Page
NOTE: as with all header content, this is not editable on page with the visual builder.
Newsletter Optin Form
If you have an email newsletter to keep people up to date with information on what’s happening at your farm – what’s in season, news about your CSA program, tips and recipes for using your products – you can use this Email Optin module to connect with your email provider so that people can sign up easily.
You can include some short reviews in this slider module, to give people confidence in doing business with you..
Latest Blog Posts
Featuring the latest posts from your blog can attract interest and lead people further into your site.
Divi Module Footer
The custom footer section is comprised of Divi modules, and injected into all pages of the site, including blog posts and WooCommerce pages. You can edit the content of the footer section in the Divi Library to include the content you want to display in the footer – you can include any Divi modules.
NOTE that as an injected section you cannot edit this on page with the Visual Builder – you need to access it in the Divi Library.
Header Call to Action
Highlight some key content that you want customers to see with this Call to Action module. As in the example shown here, if you are selling CSA subscriptions, you can feature that here.
Include a short introduction and link to more information – e.g. to your “about us” page.
Place for another short introduction with link to more information. As shown in our demo, if you are selling CSA box shares, this is a great spot to promote your program.
This carousel makes use of the slick.js library to convert the standard Divi shop module to a scrolling carousel format. You can create a featured category for your products to control which ones are featured, or use one of the other options available in the Divi module.
NOTE: because this uses an external library, it will not render as a carousel in the Divi Visual Builder. You can still access it through the Visual Builder to change the settings.
Social Media Links & Newsletter Signup
If you have accounts with some of the social media outlets where you post information about your area, provide links to them to give people a chance to follow you and keep up with all the local news.
A newsletter signup on every page also gives you another chance to get people’s email address for your newsletter.
CSA Sales/Landing Page
One of the key offerings of many farms is a Community Supported Agriculture program. If you have a CSA program this landing page can be used to explain and sell your CSA shares.
Although designed for CSA programs, it could also be adapted to provide information on other types of programs or services.
Farm Themed Icons
These free farm themed icons (10 in total) are included in the media library of the child theme, and can be used throughout your site. In this example they are used in Blurb modules to help visually explain how the program works
Customized "Bullet" Blurbs
Each bullet point is actually a standard Blurb module – allowing you to present information in a visual manner that is easy to take in at a glance.
Customized Price Chart
The price chart again uses standard Div modules to highlight the different package options you may offer.
Details and FAQ's
Using Accordion modules allows you to present a lot of information in a smaller amount of space. Customers can easily open the accordion(s) that they are interested in to see the details, without being overwhelmed with a large amount of content all at once.
WooCommerce Shop Page
Styling is included to set up a WooCommerce shop. In the demo, our shop is set up to take orders for local pickup – but you can also set up your WooCommerce settings if you want to set up a store for delivery of products.
Simple Product Page
For products that don’r require a lot of detail you can use the simple product layout – use the Short Product Description field for your product description..
If you are operating a farm stand or market, sharing recipes that use the products that you sell is a great way to engage your customers. Particularly with CSA programs where people may be receiving produce they are not familiar with, providing recipes is helpful.
The Frais child theme includes a customized recipe layout (utilizing Font Awesome icons), and also includes a customized print layout so that customers can print out the recipes to more easily use them.
We have used the Divi Project custom post type to store our recipes, in order to be able to use the Filterable Portfolio module to display the recipe page.
What’s In Season Page
This layout, using Divi Gallery modules in a Divi Tab module, provides a visual representation of what crops are generally ready by month. The royalty free images, courtesy of Pixabay, are included in the child theme, so you can use the layout as is (or replace the images with your own.) You can edit the galleries in the Divi Library to change as required to reflect your growing season.
The blog module grid layout is also carried through to the archive and search results pages.
