If there is food, it is our farmers who need to be thanked for their efforts. Farmers who intend well, work in harmony with nature are the ones who grow food which works in harmony with our bodies and minds.

मधुमतीरोषधीर्द्याव आपो मधुमन्नो भवत्वन्तरिक्षम् ।
क्षेत्रस्य पतिर्मधुमान्नो अस्त्वरिष्यन्तो अन्वेनं चरेम ॥

May the Plants be Sweet, may the Sky be Sweet,
may the Waters be Sweet, and may the Space be Sweet to us.
May the Lord of the Kshetra (Field) be Sweet to us,
and may we be devoted Followers of Him.

Sweet = filled with purity of Nature

We personally visit farmers to understand their farming practices and pick those who work closely with nature, avoiding the use of harmful farming practices. Once selected, we train them further with the best practices and ensure that they get their fair share of earnings without engaging in harmful practices.
