Big India Farms (BIF) aims to create 5000+ acres of natural farms that will produce best quality food products and offer them directly to consumers/families across India through our distribution network. It takes us more than 5 years to create a natural farm ecosystem - one that produces pure mono-floral honey, moringa, pulses, millets, ginger and turmeric, fruits like Mango, Papaya, Guava, Custard Apple, vegetables from Cherry Tomatoes to Okra, Lentils/Dals, free roaming wild chicken, herbs, medicinal plants and much more. We are currently managing 2000+ acres.
We grow flora and fauna in layers, maximizing the use of each square foot and sunlight and water resources.
First (topmost) Layer: Large Trees like Neem, Morninga, Subabul, Gooler, Teak, Mango, Mahua, Indian Gooseberry, Chakrota (pomelo), Kadamba, Mulberry, Giloy, etc
Second Layer: Papaya, Lemon, Sweet Lime, Custard Apple, Cheeku/Sapota, Guavas, and many such trees
Third Layer: Toor (arhar dal), Urad, Mustard, Suran, Millets like Kodu/kutku/sama
Fourth Layer: Ginger, Turmeric and similar structure plants, medicinal herbs, and other vegetables like Cherry tomatoes, Okra, Brinjals etc.
As part of our long term growth strategy in India we are building a consumer network that relishes and stays healthy with our natural grown products, and a modern food supply chain that will include modern food processing technology and cold storage capabilities.
Our natural farming produces pristine, high quality food products. Our products include many varieties of mono-floral honey (moringa, mahua, mango, etc), our forest farm bred free roaming wild chicken, forest millets, lemons, papaya, moringa, and cherry tomatoes, okra, brinjals, giloy, neem, vettiver, silkworms, mulberries, toor, ginger, turmeric and many, many such products.
These food products grow in our 2000+ acres natural forests, grown by us since 2005. Much superior to any commercially grown, organic, or packaged food, these are the true gifts of Mother Nature. We recommend these foods to be consumed without addition of any processing or flavor or preservative chemicals, and are sent from our farms in pristine form.
We have multiple food forests, each having a different nature of its own (Aranya, Vanya, Madhu-van, Sheetal-van, and many other forests). Please see this page: Aranyaani Food Forests

"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings." - Masanobu Fukuoka
"Many people think that when we practice agriculture, nature is helping us in our efforts to grow food. This is an exclusively human-centered viewpoint... we should instead, realize that we are receiving that which nature decides to give us. A farmer does not grow something in the sense that he or she creates it. That human is only a small part of the whole process by which nature expresses its being. The farmer has very little influence over that process... other than being there and doing his or her small part." - Masanobu Fukuoka
"One of the most important discoveries I made in those early years was that to succeed at natural farming, you have to get rid of your expectations. Such "products" of the mind are often incorrect or unrealistic . . . and can lead you to think you've made a mistake if they're not met." - Masanobu Fukuoka
"Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permanent agriculture there is no possibility of a stable social order." - Bill Mollison
