We are an Indo-American couple and live in a 30 acre farm outside of Faizabad, India. We work towards making the earth more sustainable. I develop and produce compostable packaging and my wife is a children book author and fabric artist (amongst many other things!). We have three girls 16, 11 and 4 years old.
Our friend Seema looks after the farm now (since June 2019) as we have begun our travels around the world. We visit often but you may or may not see us. You will definitely enjoy your time at the farm and with Seema.
Our farm is mainly a mango and lychee orchard and we also have a large pond for fishes. We are looking to work more with nature and convert the property towards permaculture and natural farming. Need help from people to achieve the same. We have been working on ways to learn more more and more from nature and serve the earthworms as much as we can :)
We have a decent amount of accommodation and are able to usually find a comfortable bed, good food and joyful company :)
