With backgrounds in farming and agriculture, the trio behind a new farming app know the challenges that can come with farming on tight deadlines — haulers breaking down or storms threatening crops right before harvest.

These challenges led three Iowa entrepreneurs to create Farmmee, an app aimed at helping connect farmers to people and companies that can provide necessary services.

Farmmee connects farmers with providers who can perform services they may need, including spreading manure, hauling hay or a range of other tasks. Farmers also can list themselves as providers, offering their expertise and services to other farmers.

PMFF relaunches fashion shows at an empty Okada

By Joseph L. Garcia, Reporter

IT SHOULD be of no surprise that fashion shows and fashion itself were asleep last year, when we launched PPEs at work or lounged in pajamas at home. As society opens again slowly, we try to see what it would be like to step out again in our threads.

The Panasonic Manila Fashion Festival (PMFF) relaunched its show series last week. It had been active from 2014 to 2019, but went into slumber like the rest of the fashion world in 2020.
