Why we built Forestry

My friend, Emily, needed a simple website for her restaurant. She’s a chef and didn’t want to deal with the hassle of DNS, hosting, design, etc. As a recovering freelancer, I offered to help. Normally, I would use WordPress for a site like this, but I was fed up with the headaches that comes with maintaining a WordPress site. So, I took an evening and cranked out a simple 1-page static site.
