NEXT LEVEL ORGANIC FARMING
20 years ago we set out to create a herbal medicine company that was close to our hearts. Our plan was to export India’s ancient Ayurvedic medicinal wisdom, in the form of herbal formulas and supplements, to the West. Yet after witnessing the critical and toxic state of India’s agriculture, we realised that our mission would be far better served working across the supply chain ourselves. To begin we started working across the health of the land; instituting and educating rural, local farmers in organic farming practices.
REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE EXPLAINED
With foundations in organic farming, our network of farmers practice what we term as “Regenerative Agriculture“. This practice goes beyond the standards of organic certification. We treat each farm as a unique organism. Regenerative Agriculture includes the use of comprehensive soil fertility management, seed collection, composting, water management as well as crop protection and rotation.
Regenerative Agriculture also aims to return to the ancient practices by following the rhythms of nature, such as planting and harvesting according to the cycle of the moon. These practices all help to revive the local ecosystem in India through carbon sequestration and improved water and soil conditions, ultimately impacting the health of our global ecosystem.
WORKING ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN
Every year, our network of farmers and wild-crafters work thousands of acres of organic farmland in India. In doing so, we bring our consumers quality, organic crops and herbs, while simultaneously reversing environmental damage in Indian farming communities.
We also educate our farmers and tribal wild-crafters in organic and biodynamic agricultural practices. This means our farmers never use synthetic chemicals, GMO’s or irradiation. Our intention is to leave the planet in better condition than we found. We’ve committed to these organic farming practices that heal the Earth, enrich biodiversity and sustainably regenerate the soil.
