Farmanac is an iPhone app that empowers consumers to make better decisions when shopping for fruits and vegetables.
Farmanac does the work for you, telling you exactly when produce is in season locally; what it’s pesticide level is indicating whether to splurge and buy organic, or if you’re just as safe opting for conventional; if a fruit or vegetable has been genetically modified; how to known when an item is ripe; and how to store your produce once you’re back at home. Additionally, Farmanac will give you a little background and history on the over 1,400+ items in its database.
