FARM

Nourishing and Healing our Farmlands

Intensive cultivation methods used in conventional farming degrade soil, make it lifeless, wash out the biodiversity and make the ecosystem unsustainable. Such a system threatens both people and nature. This leads to frequent crop failures and lower-quality produce. Sinking into debt, it pushes some to despair or even commit suicide.

At Nature:re Farms, we’re nourishing the planet through regenerative agriculture practices. We believe in a holistic approach that prioritizes giving back to the Earth as much as we take.

Our Solution

Our journey began in Katol, Nagpur, where we identified a critical need within the cotton farming community. Often overlooked in the organic movement, cotton farmers frequently rely on heavy pesticide use. nature:re Farms is committed to bridging this gap.

Regenerative agriculture goes beyond organic farming. It actively combats climate change by promoting healthy soil – a powerful carbon sink. Practices like cover cropping and incorporating organic matter help farmers improve soil health and trap carbon dioxide. Additionally, regenerative agriculture minimizes reliance on synthetic inputs and optimizes nutrient use, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with chemical fertilizer production.

Farmers using regenerative practices that nurture living soil give back resources to nature—like water, nutrients and biodiversity—so the land can continue producing year after year.

Trash to Treasure

Farm waste, such as cotton stock, finds new life as biochar. Produced using sustainable methods, biochar enhances soil conservation by increasing its nutrient content. It cuts down GreenHouse Gas Emissions by 12%. Furthermore, animal waste is transformed into biogas through biodigesters – a clean, renewable energy source that replaces firewood while generating nutrient-rich slurry for soil health. This fuel is used for cooking.

nature:re Farm is more than just an agricultural initiative; it’s a movement advocating for a future where responsible farming practices and environmental consciousness go hand-in-hand.

Organic production brings financial benefits for farmers as they receive higher market prices for their cotton, while also bringing positive impacts to their lands.

Currently, organic cotton accounts for 1.4% of total global cotton production – we want to scale that number by supporting farmers in sticking with or switching to organic cotton farming
