Farm Estar was created to solve the problems a lot of local farmers face, produce and product waste. We noticed that a lot of people aren’t even aware of the number of farms around them. With Farm Estar, farmers and consumers are connected in a one stop hub. Farmers can register for an account and be able to create their own “virtual farm stand.” Consumers can then be connected to all nearby farms using GPS location. Farm Estar is always open. We are the farmers market that never shuts down! No more waiting for the one day that the farmers market is open, you can now order farm fresh produce and products easily at anytime, and anywhere.
