Fquare, a new startup, aims to give consumers what they want, more organic, non-GMO foods. Fquare allows members to sponsor farms to go organic nationwide.
If you are concerned where agribusiness is heading, Fquare allows you to sponsor farms that grow conventional crops to go organic. Here's how the platform works, our team selects a conventional farm for sale, members sponsor the farm to go organic for less than the price of dinner at your favorite restaurant. Once we receive enough sponsorships we will buy the farm and hand it over to local organic farmers that will start farming the land without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, and antibiotics for 3 years as required by the USDA to get the certification as a USDA Certified Organic Farm. Sponsors are able to track the farm's 3 year trajectory from conventional to organic.
