This is an organic farmhouse located at the beautiful village Sarangkot Pandeli which is just 8 km away from Pokhara and 30mins car drive from Pokhara valley.
We started this farmhouse back in 2017 to adopt organic farming and permaculture techniques to produce our vegetables and salads by giving permaculture training, distributing Non-GMO seeds, sharing the ideas and skills with the local farmers around our area and giving awareness of Organic farming to the group of more than 35 farmers who reside inside Sarangkot Village and comes from poor family background.
Sometimes it’s very hard to get the organic seeds and plants for our farmers who lack the knowledge about how to preserve seeds and harvest it on time. So, we assist them in this knowledge sharing process and also distribute the plants of vegetables free of cost to them during the different season of time.
If we got more supply of vegetables and salads we also supply them to nearby Pokhara City by collecting from our local farmers and also planning to get involved in an Organic selling market at Pokhara. We work in collaboration with the French association, who provides us with Non-GMO and reproducible seeds, fighting against big non-ecological industries as Monsanto. We are also interested to produce the other breeds of seeds outside Nepal which are GMO-free and non-sterile.
Currently, our farm has its own vegetables 4 Greenhouse Garden, 1 Mandela, 12 Adult Cows, 3 Baby Cows and beautiful surroundings to relax your leisure time. The aim of our farmhouse is to develop sustainable and organic agriculture practices by producing non-GMO, non-sterile seeds for us and to the Local farmers around this area and self-sustain economically because young adults from our village are migrating to Gulf countries as a cheap labor and we want to attract them on farming locally.
This farmhouse is also the training and distribution center of seeds and vegetable plant for our local farmers around the Sarangkot village where you can chat with them, listen to their farming experience and exchange the organic farming skills. we hope your stay on this farm will be very happy and cheerful.
We are also eager to learn the new agricultural skills & Techniques from our volunteers which can be suitable for Nepali soil. We achieved to build 40 greenhouses in 40 different farms of our village, creating a collection of organic oriented farmers. We are also very environmentally aware for the use of Plastic and Garbages. We have provided the proper bin around our farmhouse and around the padeli viallge where our volunteers can throw the garbage to dispose it properly and keep its original beauty.
