Grains of Goodness

At our 40-acre organic farm in Manjakkudi, Kumbakonam, we cultivate heritage, artisanal, non-hybrid rice, using purely organic practices. Rich in nutrients, these organically grown grains are pesticide-free and also in turn protect our soil. At our fields, located in the heart of the janma-bhoomi of Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati, we hand-select only the best quality seeds. We harvest only twice a year during the traditional harvesting season in the rain-fed, sun-kissed paddy field to ensure the highest quality.
