Ramesh & Jayalakshmi

A Farmer who is sleeping peacefully after switching to Organic farming

From being a neighbour farmer to becoming a myHarvest Farmer, this couple Ramesh & Jayalakshmi's story inspires us to do more. Their farm is adjacent to our first farm - Vembu Farm. For the first 2 years, they watched us, got curious but something was holding them from switching to organic. The COVID Lockdown struck them hard & due to a broken supply chain they couldn't sell their produce. myHarvest team helped him switch over to prepare land for natural farming. He started with Ladies Finger and the very first season brought a bounty harvest for this hardworking young man. It motivated him to try growing 4 more vegetables. When the Villgro team visited his farm , we were deeply moved when he said the biggest relief after joining myHarvest is the fact that he sleeps better now. He & his wife clearly see their health improving and they sleep happily without itching as no chemicals are used.

Driven by a passion to create more value added organic products

Vigneswaran has been an organic farmer right after graduation. Inspired by Nammalvar , he and his mom bought land, prepped land & planted a lot of trees. His farm had many Murungai (Moringa) trees and is his favourite crop mainly because of the multiple health benefits of it . During the rainy season of 2019, he couldn’t provide Murungai Keerai or drumstick to families. Hence he came up with the idea of Moringa powder making the benefits of Moringa available to families all through the year.
