Farmer Connect is an app that helps small farmers connect to local markets, people in big cities and food delivery services so they can sell more of their produce. It also lets people buy from the farmers online, which is its main purpose. Our main goal from the UN list is to help with Sustainable Cities and Communities, it will do this by having a more diverse and close to equal amount of farm produce available to consumers. Farmer connect is aimed for people who shop at markets regularly and normal customers that would normally go to large supermarkets to get their food. To start with, this app will begin with consumers in NSW, but perhaps in the future, it will expand to other states too. We invented Farmer Connect to help the smaller farmers in our community because they are often being taken over by the bigger farmers and being forgotten about, leaving them in difficult circumstances.
