At Offering Farms, our primary tool of farming is the soil, and its myriad, complex ecosystems of microbes; not the tractor nor the harvester. Food quality wholly and solely depends on the quality of the soil it is grown in. Hence, we focus on nurturing the soil biology by implementing regenerative systems of agriculture like intercropping, cover crops, multi-layered farming and the inclusion of farm-fresh, microbe rich compost.
We take organic a step further by obtaining heirloom, open-pollinated seeds from seed-banks across the world as well as varieties indigineous to Indian soil that have been untouched by genetic modification. This exercise is fundamental to our vision of being 100% organic, and goes beyond the conventionally organic measures of being chemical-free.
