The red rai that Little Farm Co sells grows wild in their fields. It is treated as a weed by other farmers and that’s why they use weedicides to kill the red rai and other long grasses to get better crop yields. When they do grow the red rai specifically as a crop then they use all normal practices of farming like use of fertilizers, presticides and insecticides. Little Farm Co instead gather what grows wild. 100% natural, no artificial color or chemicals added
The Little Farm Co owns and manages farms in Madhya Pradesh where they produce fruits, vegetables and spices using organic fertilizers and local seeds. They have recently started producing pickles and superfoods as a natural sequence for a value addition at the farms - they handcraft pickles after sun drying vegetables using traditional recipes. As far as possible, they use Shakar and gur instead of processed sugar, and siandha namak (rock salt) instead of table salt. The employee force at the product unit are women belonging to the lower section of society who have faced domestic violence or are single parents struggling to support their family.
