We search for farmers who grow saffron without any synthetic chemical input ,and those who are conscious about the water crisis and willing to change their traditional farming techniques in order to lessen their impact on the local water crisis. The next step is to bring all of these farmers to our platform (Keshmoon.com). This way, you as a customer can visit our webpage ,get to know the farmer, and select who and what quality of the saffron you want to buy.

When we made the Saint Lucia buns, we followed the recipe. But the taste of saffron was stronger than expected, in spite of using the same amount as usual. This is probably because Hajisay's saffron is of a much higher quality than we usually get in Sweden.Read more

Keshmoon is a tech startup, whose purpose is to improve the supply process of agricultural products in the Middle East by making it shorter and more transparent. Farmland in the region is mainly in small private ownership with an average farm size of under one hectare (unlike Europe or North America, for example, where average farm size is upwards from 10 hectares and 100 hectares respectively). Keshmoon helps farmers sell their own produce under their own name and at a fair price (above that at the conventional market) that matches the quality of their produce. This way, at Keshmoon, we know who the farmer is for each batch, which area it comes from and which farming practice was used to produce it. Each product is tested separately by an authorised laboratory and its quality is known to the public. Any issue that may arise, can thus be traced back to each individual farmer. Notwithstanding sustainability issues, we hope in the long-term to be able to help farmers in developing crop patterns suitable to the land and the water conditions of their region. Keshmoon started working together with only three, but now we are working with about 300 farmers, arranging for retail supplies to pharmaceutical workshops and food manufacturers from southeastern Asia and Europe. Keshmoon started from working with the farmers of the most expensive spice on earth – saffron – in Greater Khorasan province (northeastern Iran and west of Afghanistan), but we have subsequently expanded to other products, such as barberry, various kinds of dates and much more.Read more
