About Us

 


Did you know that less than one per cent of agricultural lands alone farm poison-free produce? Should we keep quiet about it?

This is the driving force behind starting FarmFreshBangalore.com! As citizens who realized this, we could not sit back and let this plight continue. On one side customers like you don't get to eat healthy and on the other side, farmers health and that of the land are also under great threat of damage. 

These could be avoided, I felt, only if I could start a Fractal Venture supplying poison-free produce from mindful farmers following environment-friendly practices like Natural Farming and Organic Farming or even simple Desi Farming, like our ancestors did before learning to use pesticides!

Thus FarmFreshBangalore.com was started. It was incubated by The Fractal Entrepreneurship Foundation. It not only promotes better agriculture but also helps to pull its main stakeholders out of poverty.

Natural Farming

You probably have heard folks say that Organic Produce is expensive! This is so, as farmers need to travel quite a distance to store their produce as they cannot mix their wares with those grown using chemicals! 

Certification takes a lot of money, as well. Natural Farming helps to alleviate this a bit. But there are such few takers to it!

The only answer in my mind was to increase demand for poison-free produce amongst urbanites and to be the front for sincere farmers who were willing to take the challenge of doing chemical-free farming.

With more buy-ins the cost of chemical-free produce will surely come down. FarmFreshBangalore.com is firmly committed to make this a reality.

Social Enterprise Model

FarmFreshBangalore.com  is a Fractal Venture. This is a kind of Social Entrepreneurship Model developed by our mentors Radha Eswar and  Krish Murali Eswar. The model is aimed at alleviating people from poverty and enabling them to do what experts can do. In FarmFresh Bangalore, we have enabled several small farmers feel empowered to grow poison-free produce and have  packing and delivery agents who have learnt much about seasonal and naturally grown produce. Their lives have become better and soon they will also have some stake in the company.

Founder's Note

I hail from a village in TamilNadu. My ancestors were farmers. As a child I have roamed around farmlands tagging behind my grandparents. I did not hesitate to take up Agriculture as a specialization when I was asked what I wished to do on growing up! Yet, my desire was to know more and to know better. My learning in the college though scientific took me away from what I truly wanted to know. However, fate was kind and gave me yet another opportunity! 

I interned at Kuzhunji Farm started by Nammazhvar in a 100 acre land. It was a demonstration farm during Tsunami times, showing how coastal plants could be grown without using pesticides! I was awestruck! I had reached home! 

Further to this experience, I learnt about Subhash Palekar, too. My experiences in the OTG group under Mr. Viswanath added special knowledge, too. 

I joined The Fractal Entrepreneurship Foundation to learn  to become an entrepreneur in this space. I got more than what I expected! I am now looking to grow this practice throughout India!
