Who we are

Our Story

Dr. Balaji Thiruvadi and Dr. Kowsalya Balaji were a successful couple living in the Madurai city with daughter They had inherited 8 acres of land but had not done any farming for a long time. They were always conscious of the food they ate and fed their daughter, but they found it increasingly difficult to find high-quality, chemical-free produce.

One day, they decided to put their land to use and started their own organic farm. At first, it was just for themselves, to ensure they had access to the best quality produce for their family. But as they learned more about the benefits of organic farming, they realized they could also produce for the community.

Despite their busy schedules as doctors, they devoted their free time to learning about organic farming and putting it into practice. They worked hard to cultivate their land without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and were thrilled with the results. They had an abundance of fresh, nutritious produce that was not only good for their family, but also for the community.


They began to sell their produce at local markets and quickly gained a reputation for their high-quality, organic fruits and vegetables. They also started educating the community about the benefits of organic farming and encouraged others to adopt sustainable farming practices.

Today, Dr. Balaji Thiruvadi and Dr. Kowsalya Balaji continue to work as doctors, but their passion for organic farming has led them to make a positive impact on their community. Their dedication and hard work have not only provided their family with healthy and nutritious food, but also helped others to make healthier choices for themselves and the environment.
