    Vermicompost

    One of our underlying intentions in starting a dairy farm in such a remote location was to showcase to the farming community the viability of a dairy farm and to revive their deteriorating interest towards farming as a dependable livelihood. The idea was to show the farmers that by adopting modern techniques without foregoing the native methods, dairy farming can be a successful venture, providing local employment in the process.  Our efforts have been recognised and supported by state government owned organisations - GKVK, UAS, District Commissioner offices, Animal Husbandry Dept. and other private institutions and organisations.
