FARMING & FOOD FOR YOUR & PLANET'S HEALTH
FARMING NATIVE & INDIGENOUS FOOD
Your food starts with a seed, Heirloom or Hybrid, choice is yours...
Heirloom and indigenous breeds are critical to sustainability. Plant breeds that are native or ‘indigenous’ to our region are most suited for local weather conditions. they are hardy; have developed disease-pest resistance, adapt very well to climate variation and the soil environment.
HANDCRAFTED GOODNESS :)
All food that we make is largely made by hand. We think handmade is beautiful, exquisite and a work of art! The skill of the hand, intuition and creative instinct of real people has never failed to fascinate us. When we use our hands to make food, we seize our finite time and transform the mundane to something special.
ANCIENT WISDOM IS OUR GOLD
We make food in small batches because we do not use preservatives and additives to increase shelf life. Natural food will age, mature and decay. This is the natural order of life. It is vulnerable to temperature fluctuations, storage conditions and cannot stay endlessly on the shelf; unlike factory produced commercial options.
BEES FOR LIFE
We facilitate insect pollination and house 20 Bee-boxes currently. Our fruits are born from natural pollination by bees and other insects. We also support and work closely with Nomadic Beekeepers.
PACKAGING THAT CARES FOR ECOLOGY
We transitioned to ‘Raw Cotton pouches’ for our spice mixes and powders. Our glass containers can be reused or recycled.
Our glass containers are secured in strong cardboard fitment for shipping. Enabling us to fully replace plastic bubble wraps and plastic airbags.
We have a name for this beauty, Mayuri - our Electric Load carrier.
Eco Friendly, powered by electricity, Mayuri helps us transport milk to the kitchen from the cow shed daily! Harvesting more carbon into the soil than what we emit into the atmosphere
LIFES SAVINGS! NATIVE SEED BANK
We save seeds from each harvest for the next season. We also sell these seeds to consumers and share them with our farmer friends in the village. We strive to free 'the seed' from corporate control and bring back the right of the farmer to save his seeds and cultivate only indigenous, heirloom breeds.
SAVING RAIN WATER THROUGH HARVESTING
The bund that we built to harvest rainwater, this year (2020) alone, has harvested four and a half crore litres of water. This is a ‘raw’ pit and is free of plastic lining, this helps to recharge the underground water and is also helpful for our neighbouring farms too.
