As farmers, we constantly work at achieving health as a goal, as a way of life. The pandemic has forced many to make food choices finding alternative medicine through everyday ingredients and mixes in our kitchens. However, this trend of seeking medicinal value in foods is at the very core of the Indian philosophy that our ancestors lived by.
Cultivating heirloom, indigenous varieties will ensure food security even during drought or wide spread disease. They are nutrient dense and of superior taste.
Native, Indigenous Seeds can be preserved and re planted year after year by farmers without relying on industrial hybrid seeds that only last for one season resulting in corporate control of land and seed.
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.
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.
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.
As per a study done, we at TBOF, have sequestered 10,000 tons of carbon every year, which is 70,000 tons of carbon over the last 7 years. Everything that you buy from us looks like just good food at first encounter; but it is a piece of rebuilt Soil, replenished groundwater, recycled carbon.
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
