“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
― Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution
When a farmer harvests his crop, he carefully hand picks the best of his produce not for his home but yours. He intention is to make sure that the best is delivered to you. Some crops take a whole year and some reap in a week but all this while the farmer is an optimist. Carefully taking care of what he has sown. Literally leaving no stone un-turned and no plant under-nourished. The idea behind www.fivefarms.in is to bring these farmers together and present their carefully created masterpieces for your to experience. It's a collective of farmers, by farmers, for you.

Her job at fivefarms.in is to keep a check on the ever-so extravagant “other” founder. Her keen eye for detail and pursuit for perfection has been the reason we are a premium single-estate coffee store today.

He didn't. So he decided to get back to his roots and fill this vacuum. Fivefarms.in began with a 4G dongle hanging on a 40 feet pole in his ancestral estate. Technologically, nothing much has changed!
