This is a farm located in Bhalki, Bidar district of Karnataka started in the year 2022 on a 5 acre land. We are a couple(Niranjan & Shruthi)staying on this farm, we do natural farming and natural living here.
We started our journey from a metro city consumeristic, individualistic lifestyle to a simple, co learning, co dependent community centric sustainable lifestyle. As living beings we are so stressed out with our work, relationships, fast moving which in turn had an impact our personal and community well being. Here we have chosen Natural farming to feed ourselves nutritious, diversified food straight from the farm. We also work on social community bonding and development initiatives like seed bank, local forestation, community nursery and natural buildings. All of our works which involves our hands, body and energies to be put in to express our love and gratitude rather can put a money value to the offerings. We invite to our space to simplify ourselves, bringing back our consciousness and start serving each other each in whatever possible way!
