Farmerjunction.com is an India based platform, created to bridge the gap between urban consumers and rural farmers. It is an online farmers market where farmers around the country have a one-stop easy access for buying and selling agriculture products without the hassle of middlemen and price cuts. Our goal is to provide superior quality farm products at affordable price and to bring awareness to farmers on benefit of selling products directly online with ease.
What motivated us?
Falling into a debt-trap and besieged by bad weather, thousands of farmers are taking their own lives each year. There is no end in sight and there is no hope, not even glimpse of it. Everyone want to be something, but no one want to be a farmer. So who is going to produce food for us? Well…we are aware of what is coming, the corporate controlled farming. We were like everyone living our lives peacefully in our families busy with everyday work. But, there should be a meaning for everyone’s life and was missing in ours. Everyone of us spent our childhood in a farm, enjoyed the carefree life, played in mud, chased goats, eat fresh produce and food, never worried about health. But today our children live in a life that has no connection to the earth. We feel they are alienated and not understanding the meaning of nature and wilderness. We could not find healthy food for them to eat and clean water to drink. What about future of our next generation? Eat genetically modified food filled with deadly chemicals? Let our children live like rats? Let the traditional farmers disappear and corporate criminals take over?
That made us to take this initiative and that made us get motivated.
The people who are behind this initiative have diverse capabilities and expertise, but we all share two important passions: farming and technology. Together, we work to fuse those passions into products molded for farmers.
Farmers are keepers of the Earth and the guardians of the soil. They dedicate their body and soul to keep us and our children alive by producing food. We should support and protect our farmers, no matter what. Farmer junction is created to spread awareness about Indian farmers and their importance for the future of mother India and their sons and daughters.
Remember, farmer junction is not just for selling products online, it also encourages everyone to share their knowledge and help each other to bring our farmers and their life back. Our motto is “Together we rise“. If each of us start buying products directly from farmers, they would not be forced to sell their lands for money, they would not be forced to sell their products cheaply and they would not be forced to take their own lives.
Farmer junction was established in order to rescue Indian agriculture and its farmers and spread the awareness to everyone. By educating the society on the importance of farmers and revealing the countless ways farmers benefit not only human kind but also other species in this planet, farmer junction hopes to successfully serve and save our keepers of the earth.
We are a group of young men and women on a mission to bring light and hope to every farmer’s life and to drive away the darkness from their home. Our beloved farmers are now forgotten and forced out of their lands, left to die without dignity or hope. We failed to protect those who provide us food and life. Time has come to bring their life back and to display respect for them as a nation.
[su_quote]The peasants and farmers of India are the most resilient and independent community I have ever known. They have defended their rights and fought injustice and bounced back after every flood, drought and crop failure. So let every meal become a moment to thank our farmers, our annadatas, for the diversity of food they grow to bring us health, nourishment, taste and culture. Sovereignty of our agriculture is not a luxury; it is a survival imperative. And it is in our hands…Dr. Vandhana Shiva [/su_quote]
