Through natural farming methods, Good Food Villages strive to promote a healthy food management system for a positive environmental impact in food production.

The Natural farming is based on understanding the soil and creating an environment for thriving and sustainable microbial activity in the soil in order to maximize plant available nutrition. The method also tremendously increases the water holding capacity of the soil. Natural farming is based on scientific principles that microbes are the basis of all agricultural production systems.

Natural farming?

  • Provides better nutrition, enhanced taste, and better yield
  • Combines tradition, innovation, and science
  • Sustains health of the soil, consumer and ecosystem.
  • Restores the mineral and microbial balance in the soil and increases soil carbon levels
  • Increases water holding capacity of the soil
  • Helps to reduce global warming through carbon sequestration

We work with every type of farmer, to meet farming challenges through biodiversity making optimum use of available resources making farms profitable. We help farmers to follow sustainable agriculture methods using very less water and other resources to get better yield and fair price for their produce.

Natural Farming combines the best of traditional and organic farming with an emphasis on attaining naturally productive soils that display high levels of biological activity. The main purpose is to maximize the activity of soil microbes through the provision of good soil nutrition and structure, together with adequate supplies of energy, air, and water.

Natural farming is about looking at the whole agronomic, environmental picture, nutritional and biological components of what constitutes a healthy soil.

Everything comes from the soil and returns to the soil. It is a living system alive with trillions of organisms that recycle nutrients and sustains life. Natural farming methods maintain a balance between the physical and natural nutrients in the soil along with its biological facets. It follows natural principles of using beneficial bacteria, fungi, and earthworms to improve soil life.

Maximum yield is obtained by maintaining high levels of biological activity of soil microbes through good soil nutrition and adequate supplies of energy, air and water. In natural farming, water usage is very minimal and pests, diseases, weeds, low yield are indicators of an imbalance in the agricultural ecosystem. An understanding of soil biology is crucial for the farmer to make applied nutrients available to the plant. The natural farmer uses an environmentally responsive farming method to ensure the long-term productivity of the land.

Managing soil and its microbial life determines the quality and vitality of the food that is cultivated and this has a long-term impact on the health of a society.

Through natural farming methods, Good Food Villages strive to promote a healthy food management system for a positive environmental impact in food production.
