Story of Ecokisan
Ecokisan is a pioneering farmer-producer company from the Nashik region in India, known for its dedication to organic farming practices. It is a 100% farmer-driven organization, which began its journey towards organic farming in 2014 through a farmer training program called "Development of agriculture through spirituality." This training program introduced the farmers to the principles of "Vrikshya Ayurveda," a traditional Indian system of agriculture that emphasizes the importance of organic farming for both the environment and human health.
Based on the traditional practices of Indian agriculture, the organization has placed a strong emphasis on the use of indigenous cows, also known as "desi cows," as the foundation of its organic farming practices. Through the use of desi cow dung and cow urine, the organization has developed homemade organic fertilizers and pesticides, which have led to significant improvements in crop yields and soil health.
"Our vision at EcoKisan is to create a world where organic and sustainable farming is the norm, and where people have access to healthy and nutritious food while preserving the balance of the environment. We aim to be a leading player in the organic farming industry, by promoting natural farming methods and supporting farmers in their transition to organic farming.
Our mission at EcoKisan is to promote sustainable and organic farming methods that benefit both farmers and the environment. We are dedicated to providing our customers with high-quality, nutritious, and chemical-free food. By connecting farmers directly with consumers, we aim to empower farmers with fair prices for their produce and promote their livelihoods.

We believe that good health is the foundation of a happy and fulfilling life. That's why we strive to promote a healthy lifestyle for our customers by providing them with non-chemical, 100% organic vegetables. Eating organic foods is not only beneficial for your health but also for the environment and for the farmers.
We are committed to providing our customers with high-quality, nutritious, and chemical-free food that will help them to improve their health and quality of life. We understand that consuming organic foods can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and improve overall well-being.
