Need Help Buying Seasonal Organic Produce? There's an App for That (Farmanac!)

Ever been standing in the grocery store pondering whether you should spring for those organic apples? Or maybe you just want to stay abreast of which fruits and vegetables are at their peak in your region.

Well for all you health-conscious iPhone holders out there, Farmanac is a must-try app!

Farmanac is a guide for selecting and storing fruits and vegetables. With over 1,400 items in the database, this app is an incredibly comprehensive and useful source of information!

You can either browse through the database or search by PLU or item name to find the item you’re seeking. Most entries include the following information:

  1. Pesticide score (and a recommendation for buying organic vs. conventional)
  2. Some history and other general information about the item
  3. Selection tips
  4. Storage tips
  5. A guide for when the item is in season in regions across the U.S. and Canada

It’s pretty simple but quite useful! If it sounds like something you’d use, you’re in luck…

A few lucky One Green Planet readers can try this app for free!

Simply tell us in the comments section below why we should send YOU a promo code to download the app at no charge!
