The Right CMS Makes A BIG Difference

Orchard CMS is a free, open source content management system that allows users to rapidly create web sites on the Microsoft ASP.NET platform. It is built on a flexible extensibility framework that enables developers and customizers to provide additional functionality through extensions and themes.

We develop affordable websites, custom modules, and custom themes for small businesses based on the Orchard CMS from Microsoft. Whether you want a small website, e-commerce storefront, or blog, we can provide you an affordable solution today that can grow with the needs of your business.

What Is the Orchard Project?

More than a CMS, the Orchard Project as a whole is designed to bring together a community of open source developers, assisted by a full-time development staff provided by Microsoft, to create a repository of ASP.NET components that are versatile and reusable. Using those components, they sought to build a database of applications to serve as working models that developers could study to overcome hurdles that many businesses encounter. Microsoft's investment in the project is through programming manpower, and they leave the support up to the community, headlined by the Outercurve Foundation. The primary project that has been latched on to is the Orchard CMS, and the development of system has made it quite a way from the infant form of early 2010.

Orchard is based upon the newest technology, which makes it a flexible solution for the modern web demand. Sites are all HTML5, using CSS3 as the styling standard. As a fallback, html5.js is built into the solution to ensure the newer HTML tags (such as Header, Nav, Aside, Article and Footer) are properly read by older browsers.
