Probably one of the best managed large organic vegetable growing farms in India (and perhaps the world). And seeing his farm is what pushed us into growing vegetables ourselves. Their biodynamic farming practices may seem strange at first – but you can’t question the results. As the president of the Organic Farmers Association of India (OFAI), Mr. Patel clearly leads by example.
For anyone serious about learning to grow vegetables organically, his winter workshop (every December) is a must.
From a farm abandoned due to salinity and earth compaction to a vibrant organic food forest with 40+ varieties of trees of upto 25 foot tall in just two-and-a-half years (in August 2011). And the fact that is done by a couple that were pretty new to agriculture makes it even more amazing. Seeing is truly believing.
