Mission Statement

We believe in the communal power of assisting growing farms in becoming financially viable, while also providing consumers direct access to the most nutritious food near them. Since many growing farms rely on direct-to-consumer sales, the Farm Estar movement was developed out of necessity. Consumers are now able to locate farm-fresh foods that will encourage a healthier diet while supporting the backbone of your community: farmers.
