The farm consists of 2 acres of Paddy and planning for 3 acres of Mango Plantation. It has solar electricity for the farmhouse, biogas for cooking and vermin compost for manure for fodder and vegetables. Cows’ milk is used for personal consumption only. The farm also has a free range of country chicken turkey. The farm has coconut grove all around. “Planning to grow sweet corn and baby corn as intercrop so it serves both purposes. I have just planted Papaya trees and hope to see some revenue from it,” shares Mr.Swamy. Paddy is the only commercial crop currently.
All crops in the farm are grown without any use of chemical fertilizers or insecticides. Only vermin compost, biogas manure and pit manure are used. Mr.Swamy plans to start making other organic tinctures fermenting cows urine with gram and jaggery Known as “Jeevaamruth”. “Personally I think organic is over-rated and coffee table talks for the rich and west who can afford it. I think our farmers naturally live an organic life without much ado” Mr JK Swamy adds.
Jindam Agro farm is still in its initial stages and Mr JK Swamy has not taken up it as a full-time commercial activity as he is yet to wind up his commitments in Hyderabad.
