OUR JOURNEY – OUR STORY
THE JOURNEY BEGINS
Beautiful journeys begin with a single step. Ours was no different. Our journey began when we reached Bandhavgarh, Madhya Pradesh with the objective of opening a resort nearby. While interacting with group of tribal’s residing there, we came to know about the pitiable conditions these people were living in. Our minds were shaken and thoughts got provoked and then sprouted the idea of helping them live better lives. We wanted to change their lives by offering them a continuous and reliable source of earning by using their farming skills. We believed that this would fetch them better standards of living. With the mission of upgrading the lifestyle of “Baiga tribes” struggling hard to earn their livelihood, Bagdara Farms was born.
WHAT IS BAGDARA FARMS?
Bagdara Farms lies amidst the wilderness of jungles of Bandhavgarh, Katni, Madhya Pradesh. Bagdara Farms is the face of organic farming of turmeric and rice. It brings the best of organic turmeric wellness products scientifically proven to be beneficial for a healthier life.
Bagdara Farms was an opportunity for us to:
- Provide the world with the best of organically developed wellness products.
- Saving environment (soil and water) from getting polluted by promoting organic farming and plantation (with having successfully planted 10000+ trees sheltering wild animals).
- Saving the wildlife (at Bandhavgarh) by restricting hunting by the tribes and of course,
- Providing better standards of lives to the tribal’s there.
It takes immense pleasure to announce that by providing employment opportunities to almost 93 tribal families, we have successfully shifted their surviving from cutting trees and hunting animals to growing organic turmeric and rice farming! And we believe there is more to go!
HOW DOES BAGDARA FARMS WORK?
We at Bagdara Farms do everything on our own by using our own set of resources and people. We possess an in-house production, processing, manufacturing, packaging and distribution chain, which make us self reliant, without having a need to be dependent on outside resources. This assures trusted quality at every step of production.
ORGANIC FARMING AT BAGDARA FARMS
A healthy today guarantees a healthier tomorrow, is what we believe. Therefore our farmers strive hard to provide people unadulterated organic products of rice and turmeric.
Organic farming involves making the most of the soil nutrients to grow crops by using natural fertilizers and pesticides. Therefore these cultivation areas at Bagdara Farms are “no chemical fertilizer and pesticide” zones. This assures the authenticity of the organic produce.
We use natural methodologies like biodynamic, biological / natural Pest and weed Control, composting, mulching, green manuring and cover cropping etc. These help in keeping the natural organic growth of the crops, intact.
The Bagdara Farms is extremely rich in minerals, which is one of the most vital factors ensuring that the produced crop contains the best of nutrients for good health and life. To enrich the soil with more nutrients, our farmers add natural manure to the soil that ultimately doubles up the nutrition level of the crop sown in the fields.
THANK YOU NOTE TO THE FARMERS
We would like to extend our warm gratitude towards our farmers and are greatly thankful to them for cultivating the best of produce for all of us with their sweat and hard work!
It is due to their labor that we are getting to offer the best and the most naturally produced products in the times when nothing remains unadulterated!
WE THANK THE MEDICAL SCIENCE FRATERNITY
We would like to thank the elite and laureate team of medical researchers and scientists from all around the globe, who discovered the multiple health benefits of curcumin (component of turmeric, Curcumin longa) and conducted innumerable trials and studies to prove the efficacy of curcumin’s pharmacological, medicinal and therapeutic properties in not just preventing but also acting as a potent ingredient in treating a wide array of ailments/diseases. It is their contribution and hard work that has helped in bringing out the scientific facts that justify the efficacy of curcumin in turmeric, which is the main source of inspiration for our products here at Bagdara Farms.
We are a family of farmers by profession and farmers at heart!
Bagdara Farms that lies amidst the wilderness of Bandhavgarh jungles in Katni District of Madhya Pradesh, India, was initially bought for laying the foundation of a grand resort, but this plan was eventually dropped out. Bagdara Farms narrates the tale of that one major turn that ended up bringing us to the world of organic farming, along with the formation of a beautiful farming family.
An accidental interaction with the local villagers changed the entire prespective and set us on a new path. After seeing the deplorable condition of the villagers and local tribals, we decided to do something for them that would bring a difference in their lives.
With the intention of upgrading the standards of the local villagers and tribe in our hearts, we came up with the idea of engaging the villagers and tribals in an activity that they are best at, that is farming with an aim for each to have sustainable income and good living.
We, at Bagdara Farms are now growing organic turmeric and rice on the rich and fertile soil of Bagdara Farms, which is extremely rich in essential nutrients for the crop. 100% natural farming methods have been adopted to offer the virtue of organic produce to the buyers for good health and wellness, with no use of fertizers and pesticides.
We at Bagdara Farms do everything on our own by using our own set of resources and people. We possess an in-house production, processing, manufacturing, packaging and distribution chain, which makes us self reliant, without having a need to be dependent on outside resources.
To quench the philanthropic thirst of doing something for the environment and society, we also took the initiative of conserving the environment and wildlife around the Bagdara Farms by planting more and more trees. With the combined efforts of the local tribe and villagers, we have successfully planted more than 10,000 trees that are today offering shelter to the wild animals.
By providing employment opportunities to almost 93 tribal families, we have successfully shifted their surviving from cutting trees and hunting animals to growing organic turmeric and rice farming, thereby providing a sustainable and a constant flow of income .
