Ahana Organic, situated on over 350 acres of pristine agricultural land, is a pioneer in ‘seed-to-table’ organic farming practices in India. Located in the rolling hills of southeastern Uttar Pradesh, 108 kilometres from the ancient holy city of Varanasi, the farm is surrounded by bush jungle and is free from air, water and industrial pollution.
The forests that surround us are home to indigenous trees and plants, many of which have medicinal value. We have initiated a reforestation program so that this beautiful jungle can be preserved.
We are blessed with a clean seasonal river that is fed by underground springs. As this is a drought-affected area, we are actively engaged in water management and conservation and have built check-dams to form lakes to recharge our underground aquifers.
As our farm was carved out of the jungle some 60 years ago, we protect and intercrop with native plants, creating a harmony between what we cultivate and the natural plant life of the area. Interspaced with untouched bio-diverse zones are orchards of Mango, Lemon, Guava, Papaya, Jamun (Rose Apple), Bael (Wood Apple), Shareefa (Custard Apple), Amra (Golden Apple) and Aoala (Indian Gooseberry).
