Why FarmerUncle

If you have been playing Farmville on Facebook, you must know that Farmville just got real. No, you don’t have to own farmlands, but now, through FarmerUncle, a one-of-a-kind online marketplace, you have a platform available to pre-order fresh fruits directly from farmers across the country. Sounds too good to be true?!

You can now have fruits that are fresh and promise you the health benefits you have always read about, since the ‘real thing’ is not easy to find these days given the unhealthy practice of using growth hormones, artificial colours and harmful chemical pesticides by farmers to make better bucks. Moreover, since instead of multiple middlemen coming in the picture and adding on to the farm-to-table time, you simply have FarmerUncle to count on to bring the produce straight from the farms to your doorstep, keeping its freshness intact.

So buying those funny-looking hormone-injected fruits is now passe! No more making your stomach a host to unknown hormones, chemicals, etc., that can do your body more harm than good.

Above all, with every order that you place with us, you will benefit the farmer community immensely without having to make any effort in that direction. That's because fewer middlemen in the distribution network translate into far better margins for the farmers who put in their blood and sweat to grow the fruits.

Wouldn't you much rather see these farmers benefit, with more money going to their pockets, than those of middlemen, who otherwise end up as the main beneficiaries? Not only will it empower them by giving them better livelihoods, a direct relationship with you - their customers – will also encourage them to adopt better farming practices, so you go back to them every time you need to place an order.

With FarmerUncle, it's a win-win for you as well as the farmer. So why not do yourself and the farmers some good?
